Hello Foamer,

I'm trying to run interFoam with the k-omega SST turbulence model but I have been unsuccessful so far. I believe it is possible as the k-e model runs fine. Has anyone got an example ?
Also which equation should I use for the Omega coeficient. The value used in the bike tutorial example seem a lot higher that the one found by applying the standard equation:
omega= 0.09^(-0.25)*(sqrt(k))/L
