Before meshing my Spalart Allmaras NACA 0012 airfoil, I calculated the y for y+=1 for the 2 layer model.

After the simulation I plotted y+ and obtained values as low as 0.1 My question is if's alright to keep using this mesh (is there an induced error or something that can go wrong)

I saw the Fluent manual but it does'nt say anithing about y+<<1

(1). Well, if your mesh size is fixed, then shifting the mesh distribution to the wall will make the mesh coarser in other part of the boundary layer,right?

Does y+ adaption shift the mesh or just refine the mesh near the boundary?

I think y+ can be smaller than one... see Kays and Crawford, Convective Heat and Mass Transfer page 201 to 202. y+ = yu(tao)/mu... Let me know what you find.
