Default Airfoil simulation between SteadyState and Transient !!

losiola is on a distinguished road
Hello ,
Good Morning ,

I am making a 2D airfoil simulation using OpenFOAM in order to calculate Cl and Cd for different angles of Attack .

My Question is : Can i run the simulation in Steady state for All the angles and still get accurate results ? Or I have to use Transient Solver (like pisoFoam ) for Values between (8 to 25) to get accurate results?

Thank you for your help
