They seem damping-functions for both Low and High Re mesh. My question are: 1) Which is the theoretical base for the equation of K in viscous sub-layer (i.e. where come from the numerical coefficients)? PHP Code: ``` (kLowReWallFunctionFvPatchScalarField.C)00208             scalar C = 11.0; 00209             scalar Cf = (1.0/sqr(yPlus + C) + 2.0*yPlus/pow3(C) - 1.0/sqr(C)); 00210             kw[faceI] = 2400.0/sqr(Ceps2_)*Cf;  ``` 2) Is it valid for SST k-w model (y+<5)? Thanks for any advise.

(28)): http://www.os-cfd.ru/cfd_docs/wall_f..._functions.pdf 2) I think this wall function is designed for use with v2f turbulence model. I don't know whether or not it is valid to use this wall function with other turbulence models. Is there anyone familiar with this area? Hope this helps, Fumiya

Reading the paper really helped me.

Are the two approaches consistent? If not, do you know how it should be done? Should the wall shear stress be computed from uTau or, as it is done in wallShearStress from (nu + nut)*grad(U)? Thank you
