Hi all,
May be It's a studpid question but I've noticed in file "turbulence.C" in compressible turbulence models that OF calucalte Y+ like: Yp = pow(Cmu.value(), 0.25) *y_[patchNo] *sqrt(k()().boundaryField()[patchNo].patchInternalField()) /( mu().boundaryField()[patchNo].patchInternalField() *rho_.boundaryField()[patchNo]< ); I think that it's wrong because I need the Kinematic viscosity that is defined as mu/rho. (I think that mu is refereed to Dynamic viscosity) and so the right way to calculate Y+ is Yp = pow(Cmu.value(), 0.25) *y_[patchNo] *sqrt(k()().boundaryField()[patchNo].patchInternalField()) /( mu().boundaryField()[patchNo].patchInternalField() /rho_.boundaryField()[patchNo]< ); I'm wrong ?!

Hi,
In the calculation of Y
Hi,
In the calculation of Yplus in wallViscosity.H and WallFunctions.H for compressible flow codes, it is written: " scalar yPlus = Cmu25*turbulenceModel::y_[patchi][facei]*sqrt(k_[faceCelli]) /(muw[facei]/rhow[facei]); " which is as you suggest, so I guess you might be right. Thought that member function defined in turbulence.C is not used anywhere it seems. Pierre 
Hi Pierre,
So It's a bug..
Hi Pierre,
So It's a bug.. I use the function Yp in turbulence.C to check y+ for compressible turbulence model that I use. In detail I build the utility starting from "checkYPlus" incompressible utility where, I think, it uses Yp function. So how do you suggest me to build my utility to check y+ without Yp function in turbulence compressible model?! Thanks in advance Luca 
why don't you calculate Yplus
why don't you calculate Yplus directly as you wrote it above without using Yp function?

Thanks Luca, it was a bug and
Thanks Luca, it was a bug and has been fixed. Any more of these? If so please report them on the bugs list so we can keep track.

Ok,Mattijs!!
