standard and enhanced ?
Hello all,

I want to know what is the difference bet. standard wall functions and enhanced wall treatment.
Also for standard wall functions y+ if the minimum is less than 30 is that wrong? and how could i adjust its value , i use the adaption but the min always less than 30 ?

thanks in advance.

Enhanced wall treatment in Fluent is equivalent to automatic wall treatment in CFX (roughly speaking)

thanks Far,

i understand now the difference,
but i still don`t know how to adjust the value of y+

use the yplus calculator available online and is based on flat plate formulae. It is a good starting point, later on you can fine tune yplus once you have simulation results (you should get idea within 25-40 iterations).
