Default wall function and flow separation

Hi @ all,

I'm wondering if it is possible to calculate flow separation with wall functions?

I have a problem where separation occurs when resolving the boundary layer.... I used wall functions afterwards and the separation is still there.

As far as I can see, the separation is induced by the pressure gradient.
Does anybody know if wall functions are also able to resolve flow separation due to viscosity effects?
