hello foamers, I'm a bit of a newbie to the software. ive been trying to use the k-omega SST model without a wall function. i have my Y+~ 1, but i am still wondering what values for K and Omega to use in the initial conditions.

i have found several different sources to giving different equations to calculate the these values.

currently using:
Omega = 5U/L

l=chord length
this is to model the tip-vortex of a hydrofoil.
Reynolds number ~ 1.5e6

anyadvice is much appreciated

Hi mash,

If you are not using wall function i.e y+<6, the following initial condition for k and omega should be used.


Note: for omega use 1e+10 instead of minus (close to the infinity) but you have the freedom to try them both.
