Default Y+ adaption for varying boundary layer thickness
Posts: n/a
Hello everyone

I am modeling a simple 3D geometry with heat transfer and rotation. Both, the heat transfer and the rotation, cause the boundary layer thickness to vary along the axial distance. For this reason I wanted to use y +/* adaption to capture the varying thickness. Does anyone know if this is possible? So far I only managed to obtain a uniform distance of the first cell form the wall which causes my Y+/* values to have a large spread.

Thanks for any help!
