Hasselhoff is on a distinguished road

I am looking to do computations about a turbine blade in a canal. I meshed it with Icem and already got a good solution with CFX, but I wanted to do a comparison of these results with OpenFoam solvers “SimpleFoam” or “rhoSimpleFoam”. The convergence with OpenFoam was as good as with CFX but when I want to have the distribution of the Total Pressure in a Slice Plane after the blade, I have no Secondary Flow. There was no problem with CFX. Has someone already being confronted with this problem? Where are the possibly failures in the Solvers or Fluid properties.
I joined my Case File for helping.

Thanks a lot.
