Default Estimation of First Grid Point Near Wall

Hi, Iam simulating flow in a rectangular channel and using enhanced wall treatment in Fluent. For estimation of Ist grid point (y+=1) I am using the following relation:

y+=(density)*(yp)*(turbulent velocity)/(dynamic viscosity); turbulent velocity = average velocity * SQRT(Cf/2)

where yp = distance from the wall

Cf = friction coefficient

Is this process fine???

Yes, it is perfectly fine... Use Cf value according to ur flow calculations...I mean for Turbulent flows..
