If this is true then they would have used the simple else-if command which was used in the previous version of SA and K-Omega model. Still you can observe in the theory guide of Fluent (I am talking about SA model) they are using the integration to wall approach for the Y+< 2 and wall function approach for the Y+>30 and strongly recommend to make the meshes either with Y+< 2 or Y+> 30 so that they

y+ calculator for equilibrium flows

Posted April 10, 2014 at 03:58 by sbaffini (NuTBox)
Updated December 21, 2016 at 10:08 by sbaffini

y+ calculation is, possibly, the most pervasive topic among CFD practitioners and, certainly, anybody doing CFD for more than a month already has his own tool to compute it.

Still, all the y+ calculators i am aware of rely on a very specific flow condition, namely, a flat plate boundary layer. This is probably the most common practical case but not the only option. For example, the fully developed flow in a pipe is cretainly different and possibly requires a different input for the...

Rotating diverging flow, validation #2

Posted March 20, 2014 at 07:38 by skeptik (CFD notes)

Following previous post about SRFSimpleFoam, i conclude that it's not perfect solver for simulations

Also i have had many problems with stability and convergence. Not in this simple case but in case of rotating blade.
