Default Grid distance from surface
y+ Guy
Posts: n/a
hello all,

very urgent question:

1) the y+ calculator provided in this website, the computed 'y', is it the distance from the cell-node or is it the distance of the element height??

2) to compute the flow along a 3D plate, is it okay to use the length of the plate as the reference length??

many thanks for your time
