 August 16, 2012, 20:09 plotting u+ vs y+ #1 Senior Member   Shamoon Jamshed Join Date: Apr 2009 Location: Karachi Posts: 114 Rep Power: 8 I want to plot the famous TBL curve U+ vs y+on an aerofoil at supersonic speed. M=2. for potting U+ vs y+ I drew a vertical line in the mid chord, sufficiently enough to be in the boundary layer as I see through vector plot. I calculated U+ via formula through custom f/n from U/utau. and utau=sqrt(shear stress/density). When i use wall shear stress option in available functions of Fluent the U+ value was computed to be zero. Then I used tau=mu * (du / dy)y=0. This gave me some value but I still don't get the TBL plot. I get y+ value from 0.01 to 0.6 in the plot as well as maximum in the contour plot range. When I use the log scale it says that no data points in range. Please help me in this regard.

Use CFD Online Home -> Online tools -> Y+ estimation or click on http://www.cfd-online.com/Tools/yplus.php Estimated wall distance is y with this tool. Y+ for the cell adjacent to the wall is between is 1 for enhenced or 30 for standard turbulent model (See documentation)

Forget that my y+ is 0.6 lets assume it is 1 then how can I plot U+ and Y+.

I don't think that y+ is defined under this value of 1. There is a thread for how to compute y+ (FLUENT: variable -. Turbulence -> wall y+) and u+ at y+ and u+ values with low-Re RANS turbulence models: utility + testcase. You only need to compute u+ with custom functions.
