 November 14, 2003, 06:15 Y-Plus #1 Florian Guest   Posts: n/a hi everybody, i am trying to simulate the surface temperature of a coupling enclosure. thus the heat comes from a rotating coupling (14000 rpm) and now my question is, do i have to use the reynold stress model and which value of Y+ should i have or is it enough when i am only using the k-epsilon turbulence model? what are the values of Y+ for the k-epsilon model? thanks, Florian

CFX/CFX-TASCflow guys recommend to use k-omega instead of low-reynolds number model for k-epsilon. all the best! Check the User manual. email me!

 November 25, 2003, 05:43 Re: Y-Plus #5 Florian Guest   Posts: n/a thats right, the sst model is a mix of k-omega and k-epsilon. in near wall regions the k-omega model is used and in the middle the k-epsilon which can be seen when plotting the first blending factor where 1 means k-omega and 0 for k-epsilon. I have read in an article on the cfx homepage that for sst model and automatic wall function any value for y+ between 2 and about 100 can be used, there will always be the same solution.
