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. Regards, DST

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 12........now in my case the value of y+ is not same for every element because of the bldae design. .........now as u said in k-e model the value of y+ is near 30..........so how should i improve the value of y+.......? after this i will also solve the same case with k-w model........ thanx......
