The adapt option is ok, BUT: most of the time, it can only dubble or half the y+ values, because the position of the nodes can not be changed with that option. So changing of yplus means to add or remove a node, and the addition can only happend in the middle of a cell.

One hint: Use the smooth/swap option after adapting yplus, do some iterations until convergens, than do the yplus adaption again.

Much better is it, to build a grid with the right yplus from the beginning. Use sizing function and/or Boundary layer option in gambit.

I would build a grid imposing the yplus that I wanted, and then recalculating the cell size. As I know you need to estimate velocity of the adjacent flow, carachterist length of the problem, Cf and Ue.
