    Hi Nipin,

    Thanks for question first.

    PotentialFoam is mostly used to initialize the initial fields of your solution domain before running the real solver.

    potentialFoam is a potential flow solver which solves for the velocity potential (i.e. Phi) to calculate the volumetric face-flux field (i.e. phi) from which the velocity field (i.e. U) is obtained by reconstructing the flux.

    In fvSolution, it is used 10 non-orthogonal corrector steps for your solvers, giving nicely initialized fields before real run.

    I hope that this addresses your questions.

    Best.

    Barış.
