 September 4, 2007, 05:20 why the velocity on the wall isn't zero? #1 Wei Chen Guest   Posts: n/a hi all! I'm studying the turbulent boundary of the flat-plate now. First,the turbulent model I used is the k-epsilon, but i find the velocity on the wall isn't zero.(is about 7~8m/s,if the inlet velocity is 20m/s) Using the same grid ,if the turbulent model is the SST or k-omega, the velocity on the wall is right ,zero. I don't know why！

You can select one or the other option when you color a plane. The difference is well explained in the documentation and selecting hybrid should allow you to see what you want ! Also, pay attention when using the same grid for SST and k-epsilon. This is usually poor practice. Regards, Felix

I suggest you have a look at Ferziger & Peric (2002) or Wilcox (1993). If the behavior of the flow in the vincinity of the wall is important to you, try solving right through the viscous sublayer. Some k-epsilon models can do that, the k-omega too and the SST when you keep y+ < 2. Felix

Try improving your mesh etc... Refer to the user manual. Lots of tips there to help you improving your results.

Solving through the viscous sublayer is not a miracle solution. It only allows to get computed results near the wall. Felix
