refineWallLayer for reaching y+<1 for low Re number turbulence model

Hi:)
Dear foamer i have a big promlem, i want to analysis two turbulence models on 3 element airfoil, 1. high Re number e.g realizableKE ==> 30 <y+ <200 2. low Re number e.g lunderSharmaKE ==> y+ <1 i use snappyHexMesh for meshin the domain aroun the airfoil, and after finishing the analysis with realizableKE, i execute "yPlusRAS" and it told me y+ is: Time = 3400 Reading field U Reading/calculating face flux field phi Selecting incompressible transport model Newtonian Selecting RAS turbulence model realizableKE realizableKECoeffs { Cmu 0.09; A0 4; C2 1.9; sigmak 1; sigmaEps 1.2; } Patch 5 named main_solid y+ : min: 3.92116 max: 92.2824 average: 41.5749 Patch 6 named flap_solid y+ : min: 11.3159 max: 75.4566 average: 34.844 Patch 7 named slat_solid y+ : min: 17.4322 max: 61.5812 average: 43.726 and the checkMesh for RealizableKE doeasn't complain of skewness and nonOrthogonality, here it is: Create polyMesh for time = 3400 Time = 3400 Mesh stats points: 188346 internal points: 0 faces: 368558 internal faces: 182800 cells: 91461 faces per cell: 6.02834 boundary patches: 8 point zones: 0 face zones: 0 cell zones: 0 Overall number of cells of each type: hexahedra: 88316 prisms: 584 wedges: 0 pyramids: 0 tet wedges: 0 tetrahedra: 0 polyhedra: 2561 Breakdown of polyhedra by number of faces: faces number of cells 7 1953 8 603 9 3 10 2 Checking topology...

Coupled point location match (average 0) OK. Failed 1 mesh checks. but when i execute refineWallLayer for reaching lower layer thickness near the wall and also lower y+ that was proper for lunderSharmaKE, the checkMesh complain skewness alot. what should i do?:(:(:( how should i yeild the low y+ with snappyhexMesh??? please guide me:(
