wall functions and boundary conditions in OF 1.7.1
I am running a case of flow past an airfoil using simleFoam and the kOmegaSST turbulence model. I have a y+ of less than 1 everywhere. When I use wall functions it runs ok, but it doesn't quite reach the free stream value of k that I specified in the boundary conditions. When I use the FixedValue condition at the wall, the boundary layer gets way too thick. I am not sure what the value of omega should be at the wall, in theory it should be 0, because k=0, but when I specify that value the solver crashes. I tried a very small but non-zero value and it runs, but with the BL grows too thick.
I am not sure if using wall functions is justified if y+ is less than 1, can anyone give me some advice?
For turbulance, there are two methods close to the wall. Wall functions for y+ > 30 or integrating to the wall. See
if you wanna run this case in low Re approach, consider the following link http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...omega-sst.html it will give you the right boundary conditions and some suggestions on how to use the OpenFOAM kOmegaSST model in a low Re (y+<1)
