 November 2, 1999, 13:48 solid surface boundary condition #1 qlr Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links Hello, everyone: I use high Reynold number k-epsilon model to solve a flow past a flat plate. to assign the boundary condition at the wall, I just use those points which are just beyond the viscous sublayer and within the law of wall region. As we know, the u,k,and epsilon at this region are related with friction velocity as u/u*=ln(Eyu*/mu)/kappa, k=u*/sqrt(cmu), epsilon=u*^1.5/(kappa*y), where u* is friction velocity. I want to know how to get u, k, epsilon at this region, since the u* is also unknown. Thanks in advance. qlr

 November 2, 1999, 17:51 Re: solid surface boundary condition #3 qlr Guest   Posts: n/a Hi,Valdemir How can use u/u*=ln(Eyu*/mu) to solve u*, since I use this equation to get u at the law of wall region. Another problem is: since I use the law of wall region as the wall boundary, how can I know which y value is good to set as the wall boundary. Thanks. qlr
