Dear OpenFOAM users,

Is there someone who has experience with simulating a ship or propeller under bollard pull conditions. In the literature, many authors are writing that it is impossible as OpenFOAM always needs an inlet velocity. Is this true? Because I am experiencing difficulties with the boundary conditions and convergence for this kind of simulation. ( I am using a simpleFoam solver)

Thanks in advance and kind regards,
