I'm simulating 2D airfoil..
Governing eqn is kEpsilon
y+ min : 6.96 max = 30.79859 average = 15.6028
and mesh is generated by salome (viscous layer =0.03 and distance:0.0006)
at (http://www.pointwise.com/yplus/), i used 0.0006
xfoil naca0015 Cd = 0.00579 and mine is 0.048
I don't know what is the problem..
here are mesh picture and 0,system,postprocess folders

Drag prediction is strongly dependant on the resolution of the viscous layer. K-epsilon model uses wall-function to model this region (30<y+ <300) and drag is not correctly predicted.
I suggest you to use Spalart Allmaras or SST k-omega models with a y+~1 in order to obtain more realistic values.
Also, check the dimensions of the mesh. Maybe your domain is too small and the wake is not fully captured (or mesh resolution is not enough in this region)
