 May 8, 2000, 02:26 Turbulent flow over flat plate #1 Narayanan Guest   Posts: n/a My problem is a turbulent flow over flat plate. i have u-momentum equation and continuity equation. v-momentum equation is neglected by using order of magnitudes. no pressure difference in x-direction because of potential flow. i have defined wall boundary and inflow boundary in x-dir and top flow boundary in y-dir. outflow boundary in x-dir is not defined. i am using finite volume method. at the wall u velocity is calculated at yplus=30 by using loglaw. for log law shear stress at wall is calculated by meot*du/dy where meot is turb viscosity which is calculated by mixing length model. mixing length model is also used for modelling terms in u momentum eqn. The problem is after many iterations the distance from wall calculated from yplus crosses the first grid. please help me.

Are you fixing the mass flow and iterating for wall stress, vice-versa or something else? I am not sure I fully understand the last sentence (the problem). Are you fixing the grid line at the wall to y+ = 30 and the next grid line away from the wall has a y+ < 30?
