Hi everyone,
I am trying to simulate flow over an airfoil. I have a very fine mesh near the boundary of airfoil and so I want to skip the use of wall functions. But i find that the option of using wall functions cannot be disabled. Can anyone help?

if your average Y+ is relatively low(<5). use enhanced wall function.
