 February 5, 2006, 13:11 Newbie Navier Stokes Questions + Grid #1 Jigar Guest   Posts: n/a hello if i am running Navier Stokes for the entire 3d flow domain (near wall and far from walls), is the y+ value really an issue in this case? Is doing a simple grid dependecy check enough for near wall regions???? (my problem is flow in a room so no Eulerian at is used at all) my 2nd question: if i use Power (Watts) as boundary conditions instead of Surface temperature for an object, is it true that the grid distribution near the object is not really important???

Grid resolution is important if you want to resolve the gradients that control the flow. If you don't care about the gradients then use whatever grid you want. If the velocity gradient near the wall (which is actually fairly important in most flows) is not an issue then y+ is unimportant. And regardless of what boundary conditions you use, you still need a good grid distribution near the object if you want to resolve the gradients in the flow field.

It is for indoor air simulation, and uses Navier Stokes for the whole flow domain
