mcruvie94 is on a distinguished road
I have been trying to determine the reattachment length of the turbulent flow over a backward facing step at reynolds numbers 93000, and 210000.
From what I have seen in the previous studies, a reattachment length of around 7 units should be found, however, I am currently getting values in the region of 3-4.

Can anyone help on why this may be?
