Well, I need to find the exact equations that are being solved by OF each time I run a case, using this solver. I also want to figure out what is the algorithm that is being followed.

If anybody could give me some information I will be grateful!

You can look in the source code?

Sure, I just asked in case there is already a webpage that has some information concerning this solver. Is it possible to understand the algorithm by just looking at the source code?

The wiki might help:

I am new to this forum, new to CFD and also programming. My first cfd code was jos stam's fluid dynamics code. I came to know it's not a good code to simulate turbulent flow (or is there a way to introduce turbulence into it) . I came to know that RANS is one good method to simulte turbulent flow. It would be very helpful if you could suggest any basic RANS source code I can refer............. Please Help .......
