Hi everyone,

I am using OpenFoam and the solver rhoPimpleFoam. I am calculating a flow around a NACA airfoil. The problem is that my calculus is very long (around 4 days).
I would like to know if I am obliged to have a current number less than 1. In fact, I am searching a permanent flow... (I am using rhopimpleFoam but I didnt't success to run it).

Thank you for your answer

Hey Sofia,

Did you find any way to make "rhoPimpleFoam" work??? I am also not able to make it run..
Imagination is more important than knowledge..

If you look for a steady-state solution, use rhoSimpleFoam.
