I am trying to run the same geometry, a diffuser, in steady (simpleFoam) and unsteady (turbFoam) mode with version 1.4.1 using standard k-epsilon. The steady calculation works without a problem, but when starting the unsteady calculation I get:

Selecting incompressible transport model Newtonian
Selecting turbulence model kEpsilon

Starting time loop

Time = 0.01

Courant Number mean: 0 max: 46.5449672485878

Pretty strange!? It is the first time that I experienced such a problem. It worked so far well for other calculations... except this simple diffuser (it is the ercoftac workshop 2D asymmetric diffuser). Does anyone have a hint, what I am doing wrong?
