 January 7, 2011, 10:47 How to calculate Y+( Yplus) #1 Senior Member   mohammad Join Date: Dec 2010 Location: Seoul, South korea Posts: 214 Rep Power: 8 Hi everybody. I'm working on a wind turbine. I want to set the first node position ( yplsu) for teh blade.my question is that how should I calculate Yplus? I have found the formula DY=L*(DY+)*SQRT(80)*Re^(-13/14) as a rule of thumb to calculate Yplus. But, as soon as I get the results and I see the value of Yplus in the CFX_postresult, those values really differ from what I set in ICEM. Do you still think the above equation for calculation of (DY+) is trustworthy and enough? If the resulted Yplus' are severely different form the given Yplus, Should I go back to ICEM file and rearrange my mesh or just when the above equation is satisfied it's enough? TNX

Results of that link are the almost the same as the proposed equation in Ansys Help Manual... For future readers, I must say that according to my experience, the equation is good but It's necessary that after applying this equation and calculating the YPLUS you must check the value of YPLUS in CFX-POSTP_ROCESS and check whether you need more changes or not...I mean as an essential and extra check check CFX-POSTP_ROCESS. Best wishes
