I wuold like to know which kind of variables are suitable for mesh independece studies... is it the mean volume fraction of liquid (in a vapor-liquid flow), wall heat transfer, heat transfer coefficient, etc., good ones?

I that kind of studies, I always contrast y+ with the variable of study.

Comparing wall shear stress or wall temperature with y+ will give you relevant information.
