Hi guys

I need to know the value of boundary layer thickness i should give in ansys meshing(icem-cfd) so as to get the contour matching to the experimental results.The experimental contour has a greater thickness of boundary layer.

I gave smooth transition and no.of layers as 5 to get the the contour produced by computation.

Also if i give total thickness it asks me to specify max.thickness???what should i do?

And what about y+??I have no idea what y+means or where it input it or how much will it be??
