 August 26, 2006, 05:19 enhanced wall treatment #1 saeed Guest   Posts: n/a Dear users I'm simulating a closed cavity with Flunt 6 .. Realizable... but I dont know what wall function i should use for modeling it . my problem have 2 walls with heat flux and i'm validating with a paper written by Kenjeres ... so i should solve my problem with high accuracy .. I search help contents of Fluent but .. there is;nt any subject about enhanced wall treatment .. If its possible fou you please send me some information about it tanks...saeed

Put a bunch of cells near the walls and solve. Then check y+. If y+ is about 1, your OK. For y+ >> 1 add cells near the wall. For y+ << 1, reduce the number of cells.

I mean If what I want to know is the temperature distribution along a wall a wrong y+ can vary the results severly? Do you trust in an other viscosity model?

The wall function would be applied to the first one only, even through others will be in the boundary layer. Thus, the boundary layer thickness would be too low. Switch to enhanced wall treatment of the y+ is too small for standard wall functions. It is an extreme generalization (with plenty of exceptions) that you probably should not use standard wall functions when wall flows are critical. So, for the flow in a large room, wall functions are usually OK. For flow between two closely spaced plates, the usually are not OK.
