plotting the value of y-plus

I'm a student and I have just started to use CFX 4.4. I need to know how to plot the value of y-plus at the cell next to the walls. I'm using Visualise as post-processor.

I'm thankful for all the help I can get

Best regards

Re: plotting the value of y-plus
If I do not remember wong then the values for the nearest cell to the wall is actually stored at the wall. So the best approach is to plot the y-plus value at the walls.

Re: plotting the value of y-plus
Hi Dennis,
Under CFX-4, if you want to view the YPLUS values in a post-processor you must add an user scalar equation. Then go VARIABLE NAMES and enter 'YPLUS'. CFX-4 will store the yplus values at walls in the dump file.

Hi there,

If you put WALL PRINTING in the output options location in the .fc file, you will yet the values of the y-plus in the .fo file.
