Hi everybody,

I am looking at any information about the alphat wall functions, and more precisely the alphatJayatillekeWallfunction. Is there any article about the wall function in OF ?

I had some difficulties to stabilize a compressible k-epsilon RANS model with the alphatwallfunction. I'm working on a low reynolds mesh at walls (y+ ~ 1.5).

Could you also post your case if it is small? currently i am also working on flat plate test case to verify alphat wall function for heat transfer problems where i have fluent results. initially i also had low reynolds grid but changed to coarse grid inorder to work with standard high reynolds compressible turbulence model.

here is my current post,

heat transfer with RANS wall function, over a flat plate (validation with fluent)
