Hi sidspark12,

all depends on your turbulence model. Wrong y+ parameters can(!) lead to wrong functioning of turbulence model (but, not so easy, as usual - everything depends on everything).

Let's say that one general approach (but not the rule) for y+ for two-equation models is
y+ ~ 1 for k-w
y+ ~ 30 for k-e

Of course, it is quite difficult to have constant y+ in all the surfaces, but usually you can try to be near to that values.

For y+ information you can check in solver's manuals - like in CFX manual or Fluent manual.

Hello DST

thanx...a ....lot...

Right now i am solving the case of FRANCIS TURBINE. for that i am using k-e model......and the value of y+ is around in my case the value of y+ is not same for every element because of the bldae design. as u said in k-e model the value of y+ is near how should i improve the value of y+.......?

after this i will also solve the same case with k-w model........
