Hi all,
I'm working on a simple case of a submarine in Deep-water with a k-omega SST turbulence model, using simpleFoam resolution. We are trying to have the lowest percentage of errors for our Cd between a CFX result and OpenFOAM.
At the moment, we have a percentage of error of 15%. In the picture you can see all of my settings and options I took...
I just want to know if you have any idea of what I can change to have better results?

Thanks a lot
