but isn't it always laminar flow very close to the wall? so should it have a low Reynolds number regardless?

I also have the very same question that Anne had many posts back, so I would just like to get clarification:

If I have a fine mesh which aims to resolve the boundary layer with y+ < 1 what boundary conditions are appropriate for the problem? Is the following correct for a wall patch? The current issue I have is that when I use the omegaWallFunction on my walls, I get a massive value of omega at the wall (about 1e8)

    type        zeroGradient;

    type        calculated;

    type        fixedValue;
    value       uniform 1e-10;
