flatplate Turbulent BL flow, OF, kOmegaSST model

4 Attachment(s)
Hi all,
I have simulated flatplate turbulent BL Flow in openFoam (simpleFOAM) using kOmegaSST model. But i am not getting results very close to the expt data of Weighardt's. Here I have attached uPlus-vs-yPlus curves and Cf distribution.
Can anything be said about where I should focus on to improve this result of mine?

I also ran another simulation using LaunderSharmaKE model which seemed to give rather better results. However my concern is towards achieving better results with SST model.

divSchemes --> Gauss upwind;
laplacianSchemes --> Gauss linear corrected;

SOLVERS:
p --> GAMG, GaussSeidel smoother
k,U,nut,omega --> smoothSolver, GaussSeidel smoother
