Yanma is on a distinguished road

I want to simulate crossflow over a cylinder, respectively test generated meshes.

This case it is a steady state, incompressible, Re~100, laminar problem.

Which solver is the better one to use for that problem, simpleFoam with turned off turbulence Model or icoFoam in steady state modus ?
