danvica is on a distinguished road
I need to compute the properties of the water flow coming from a pressurized vertical nozzle (meshed imported from SALOME) into air under gravity force.

Which is the best solver for this case ?

The only solvers with gravity are those of the multiphase family but in my case the air can be neglected.

Is there any simplefoam solver with gravity included ? Or how can I modify it ?

By the way... is it possible in this way to decide the best nozzle shape in order to obtain a laminar flow ?
