Hi there!

When running a simulation using the k-epsilon turbulence model which requires wall functions, it is also required to make sure the mesh used has the correct (in this case high enough) y+ values. (correct?)

From: http://www.computationalfluiddynamic...-requirements/

In cfx:
" Without any further user involvement, the scalable wall functions activate the local usage of the log law in regions where the y+ is sufficiently small, in conjunction with the standard wall function approach in coarser y+ regions "

Now my question is, if similar scalable wallFunctions also exist in openFOAM?

Kind regards
