laminar separation bubble

Has anyone tried to visualize laminar separation bubble through openFoam? If so then which solver did u choose? I am trying to visualize separation bubble for Re=300 on a slit cylinder and as per literature i should see a laminar separation bubble... but i am not able to see... could anyone help? regards

Hey Subhankar, Could you give the details of what solver and turbulence model you were using?

Therefore, to the extent of my knowledge icoFoam cannot capture the Laminar Separation Bubble.
