Hi
Dear foamer i have a big promlem, i want to analysis two turbulence models on 3 element airfoil,
1. high Re number e.g realizableKE ==> 30 <y+ <200
2. low Re number e.g lunderSharmaKE ==> y+ <1
i use snappyHexMesh for meshin the domain aroun the airfoil, and after finishing the analysis with realizableKE, i execute "yPlusRAS" and it told me y+ is:
Time = 3400
Reading field U

Reading/calculating face flux field phi

Selecting incompressible transport model Newtonian
Selecting RAS turbulence model realizableKE
realizableKECoeffs
{
Cmu 0.09;
A0 4;
C2 1.9;
sigmak 1;
sigmaEps 1.2;
}

Patch 5 named main_solid y+ : min: 3.92116 max: 92.2824 average: 41.5749

Patch 6 named flap_solid y+ : min: 11.3159 max: 75.4566 average: 34.844

Patch 7 named slat_solid y+ : min: 17.4322 max: 61.5812 average: 43.726

and the checkMesh for RealizableKE doeasn't complain of skewness and nonOrthogonality,
here it is:
Create polyMesh for time = 3400

Time = 3400

Non-orthogonality check OK.
Face pyramids OK.
Max skewness = 2.67447 OK.
Coupled point location match (average 0) OK.

Failed 1 mesh checks.

but when i execute refineWallLayer for reaching lower layer thickness near the wall and also lower y+ that was proper for lunderSharmaKE, the checkMesh complain skewness alot.
what should i do?
how should i yeild the low y+ with snappyhexMesh???
please guide me
