Conflict between y+, cell size and particle deposition
I'm hoping you can put me straight here:
I'm investigating particle deposition onto indoor surfaces. Therefore Reynolds numbers are generally less than 10,000. So I'm using a wall function which requires y+ in the first cell to be about 30. Mine are, however, often about 1.
Therefore this gives me incorrect results. However I need sufficient grid resolution for accurate particle deposition.
What are your recommendations?
i haven't rly done any turbulent simulations in openfoam w/o wall functions. Some say that you may need y+ as small as 0.1 to resolve the whole thing properly but i guess that depends on the turbulence modeling/intensity :confused:
guess that you'll have to use low-re models to resolve the BL... try LaunderSharmaKE ras incomp/comp model or the new transition incompressible one kklOmega
set zero gradient on walls and respective values at inlet and outlet!? can any1 with xp in this topic back me up? or maybe correct me?
sry kingj, but i cant help you any better :(
hope it helps somehow
if i have more time i'll try checking some references cuz i'm interested in that 2!!!!!;)
sry to be of no help :(
ok i've looked a bit more into the topic and i confess this is one of the most puzzling topics in cfd for me...i'm still reading Pope's book of turbulence for better modeling theory but atm this is what comes to me from my current knowledge
1:we all know the scale issues related to HiRe lowRe numbers and bounded flows
2:you either have turbulence or you don't!
3:if you do, you have to choose between low or high Re turbulence modeling (lets stick with RAS)
5[edited]: wallfunctions... kinda routine settings for hiRe.. BUT, to resolve a bl you need a lowRe Ras model: have a refined mesh with low y+=1, use calculated type for nut/mut (few say zeroGrad wont change much), zeroGrad for k/epis or very small values like 1e-10 on walls
==>>zeroGrad for k/epis or very small values like 1e-10 on walls: i guess that in the limit they should yield similar results? no? == any comments/corrections to this are most welcome!!! ==
check this pdf,
maybe it will point sth you may have missed :p
guess that's all i can try to help you with!
EDIT: sry about the editing but i corrected some assertions made previously
