How to decide Y plus
I have question how to decide the y plus?
You should check CFD-Wiki and the online tools we have here at CFD Online:
Here is a tool to compute the needed wall distance for a desired y-plus: http://www.cfd-online.com/Tools/yplus.php

Thanks for your reply,
I have done the calculations by using the formulas which you have suggested.
But I don't know how to choose the y plus for the calculation of the first cell height. My mass flow is 0.055 m/s for air. By calculation i got Re=52401, Rho=1.18415, but when I take the y plus value 80 then the first cell height is 4.37 mm.. But wb=hen i take y plus = 1 then first cell height is 0.055 mm.
is that correct.
One more question, On which basis we can select the y plus value for the calculation of the first cell height.
As per my study y plus between 1-3 is viscous sub-layer or laminar region , 3-30 transition layer, and 30-120 or 150 is turbulent layer. but on which basis should i choose the y plus value.
when Reynolds no is more boundary layer is small. then the region is viscous sub-lyer near the wall.
What y plus you want depends on what turbulence model you use.
