Summary0001513: CrankNicolson unstable
DescriptionUsing CrankNicolson discretezation method with icoFoam solver after some iterations solution explodes, but the first steps was quite good.

According to the bug http://openfoam.org/mantisbt/view.php?id=1468
Does it mean that using:
ddtSchemes
{
    default CrankNicolson 1;
}

in version 2.3.0 will lead to unstable result ?

CrankNicolson is less stable than backward and usually requires off-centreing. I would recommend an off-centreing coefficient of 0.9.
