Hi,

I'm a bit confused at the moment. Fluent calculates wall y+. Does this y+ value correspond to the center of the wall adjacent cell, or to the (twice as large) width of the wall adjacent cell?

Thanks!

Hi!

I think that it calculates in the center of the cell, where all the properties are calculated (pressure, velocity,...)
