 December 19, 2017, 09:51 Yplus calculation for buoyant flow #1 New Member   Rajesh Join Date: Jan 2016 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hello, I have to refine mesh near wall in a natural convection case and the y plus should between 30 and 300. but in the buoyant case my internal fluid has initial conditions of velocity as (0 0 0). How can I calculate y plus with zero velocity in the domain? The flow should pass from hot wall to cold wall. Thank you

Should I give any inlet velocity at AC vents and outlet pressures? or the air in the room has zero velocity without any inlet velocity. I am new to simulating with energy equation included. Any references to read can be greatly helpful.
