I was reading the manuals for Fluent's UDF and chanced upon the wall function. This is what it said. Your UDF will
need to compute the real value of the wall functions U+, dU+, and dY+ for laminar and
turbulent regions and return them to the solver.
My question is: what is dU+ and dY+?
Also are these the only things i have to worry about when defining my own wall functions? I think i might have to alter the shear stress as well dont i?
Please help.

I have the same problem, because I need to model de shear stress with a function like this one:

Tau = Cd*rho*U^2

How can I do this?
It should be very simple, however I don't know how.
Here is the example of fluent.

And here the definition of the wall function by Launder and Spalding.

But with this information I am not able to do the wall function that I need.

¿Someone could help ?
