Implementation of the Low-Reynolds-number Chien model
 
I'm trying to implement the Chien model with OpenFoam, but I have some general doubts on the description of y+.

The Chien model uses y+ for the definition of the damping factors.

Suppose to describe a 2D duct flow in with the following configuration:

HTML Code:

<pre>

    /\  y
      |
      |
      |
      ------------>  x

____________________________________________
->                                                                    ->
->                                                                    ->
->                                                    *            ->
->_________            _ ,      .________,*________->
                  |        |  |        |               
                  |____ _|  |___ __|


</pre>

y+ is defined as: y+ = (U_t * y) / nu

and U_t(x) = sqrt(tau_w(x) / rho)

y+, U_t, tau_w are functions of x!!!

It is necessary to define for each point (x,y) of the numerical domain the x coordinate in which define y+, U_t and tau_w.

An example:

In both points identified with " * ", tau_w must be evaluated in " , ".
But in the point " ", shall tau_w be associated with " , " or with " . " ?

Does anybody have experience on this aspect? What is the principle to adopt in this task?
