I'd like to use KOmegaSST turbulent model solving directly the BL because I set y+ lower than 1. I guess I have to set k=0, but how can I set omega at the wall, if I don't want to use any wall-functions? Thank you in advance.

Setting k=0 means, that the fluctuating part of the velocity is zero. Does that make sense in your case? Best

The way I did this for "k" was normally to use the kqRWallFunction at walls: Code: ``` type kqRWallFunction; value uniform 0.1;``` and the turbulentIntensityKineticEnergyInlet function at inlet: Code: ``` type turbulentIntensityKineticEnergyInlet; intensity 0.005; // 0.05% turbulent intensity value \$internalField;``` I am not very concern about the actual meaning of "value" this time. kqRWallFunction should "know" that at the wall is no velocity and thereby no turbulence. I think sometimes OF simply needs the "value XXX;" line although it does not use it in the end (If I am not correct about this, I am of course happy to be enlightened as well :-) ) By the way: I found these lines in some tutorial files and used them for my simulations. If you search in the tutorials you mostly find what you need. Best

Actually I'm talking about walls (it is a flat plate placed in the middle of the domain). I don't know if using the omegaWallFuction it automatically will avoid the WallF hence calculate the BL. Bye
