 October 7, 2002, 17:08 Extapolation of forces with wall laws. #1 Shu-Ren Hysing Guest   Posts: n/a Hi. Doe's anybody know if/how it is possible to extraplate the shear forces from the values obtained with k-epsilon wall laws in order to get more accurate lift and drag force calculations. That is, I want to be able to obtain values of the forces directly at the walls even though I have used wall laws and thus don't have access to the values at the walls.

Maybee there's not much difference, anybody that has experience with this?

Since you have y+ at point y, it comes : nu*y+/y = u+ = sqrt(Tau_wall/rho) This is under log law equilibrium hypothethis, otherwise.... Hope that helps, Sylvain
