zebu83 is on a distinguished road
I run channel tutorial in OpenFOAM 1.5.x, I make "postChannel", then I visualize the results... here we are some plots:


It's quite good, but it seem to be a mix between a channel U mean profile and jet profile.





Fluctuations and Reynolds stress are totally wrong!!!
From the initial condition they grow up in the middle of the channel.
Have you any suggest?

I modify a little bit the tutorial. My channel is:
x*y*z: 3.5*2*2
nx*ny*nz: 80*180*120
nu: 4*10-5 (to have Re_tau ~ 180)

I use CrankNicholson for temporal interpolation and I try:
CrankNicholson 1
CrankNicholson 0.75
CranKNicholson 0.5

all lead to the results post.

Where am I wrong?

Thank you very much!
Best regard
