As in Eugene's PhD thesis, the parabolic profile is modified by

here, as in the reference paper"Coherent structure dynamics in near-wall turbulence, Schoppa,1999", the profile's maximum streak is at y+=30, while in the perturbU code:
 U[celli][streamDir] +=
                (utau * duplus/2.0) * (yplus/40.0)
                * Foam::exp(-sigma * Foam::sqr(yplus) + 0.5)
                * Foam::cos(betaPlus*zplus)*deviation;
so in the code, the maximum streak is at y+=40 if I didn't misunderstood. How and why the position where exists maximum streak is chosen, and also the zplus and xplus? I can't find any information about this in these two papers.
