You have it even for very smooth surfaces. In most CFD programs a standard roughness is set. But if you have a much rough surface liek sandcorn size you have to modify the wall functions for the turbulence model with the right roughness height. Normally teh roughness height is measured in 10^-6 m but in CFX you add it also in m so be aware of that ! Sascha

But if you have a look the USRWTM, it is mentioned that for RFACT = 0.3 WOULD BE FULLY ROUGH and RFACT > 0.3 GIVES LESS ROUGHNESS. Is it correct? The equation which is used in the example, it is contradictory. Could you tell me something about this. From the equation, I think that RFACT = 0.3 WOULD BE FULLY SMOOTH and RFACT > 0.3 GIVES LESS SMOOTHNESS. Thanks again. Sumon

When you check with the appropriate wall function which you have to use for rough walls a dimensionless roughness height as used in USRWTM (first example) will mean an increasing roughness for this parameter when u increase it.
