 April 25, 2005, 13:11 Wall functions #1 Taskin Guest   Posts: n/a hi, I wonder if k-w models also use wall functions? I heard that they were not using so our analysises should have y+ values between 1-10. But I couldn't find if k-w uses wall functions or not from the user guide. So I can't decide whether to hold y+ values between 1-10 or 30-90. Can anyone help me solving the situation? Regards Taskin
