I have a few questions.. can anyone tell me how can I determine the height of prism mesh?...what is the recommended height...please direct me to some source where it explains how can I determine that.. when I plot the y+ value in Fluent...from a surface..in my case a simplified car...what is the y value that is used to calculate this y+..is it the centroid of first cell next to the surface?
