Hi to everybody,
When checking meshing independence I make 3 meshes with different coarsenings. The viscosity k-omega SST model is used in all of them. My question is the following: should I keep the height of the first cell in contact with walls in the 3 meshes in order to keep the y+, so the viscosity model keeps being valid?
Thanks in advance!

If you have control on the first cell distant from the wall, you should keep the same for all 3 meshes level
