Can anyone tell me the way to implement the enhanced wall function used by Fluent. I know that they use the approach of White and Cristoph, but I am confused as how do I apply this in Solver.

I am stuck with the implementation of alpha (pressure gradient term) in it.

Not sure about what puzzles you in that, but this is a possible implementation of pressure gradient effects:

Yet, I have to say, I really dislike implementations that nondimensionalaize the pressure gradient with viscous scales, even if they use u* instead of u+.
