Default Yplus is .5 to 3. what to do
Posts: n/a

i did my analysis using Low Reynolds number K-e model. i got the Yplus value varying .5 to 3. but limitation of the K-e model is valid for yplus value in the particular range 20 to 100.

i am not interested to provide a coarse mesh in near wall region (around the solid Cylinder(fin)). because i want to predict the boundray layer seperation. then how to go further.

This kind of Problem may i use wall function

May i neglect the Yplus value.

Can you suggest me any other turbulent model for this kind of problem.

you can use hybrid wall functions which extend the range of wall function down to about y+=1. You have to select a low re turbulence model, but you just don't need the grid intensity, or try the V2f turbulence model.

I think 0.5 to 3 is OK with low reynolds number models. if you are able to refine it further, it is good.

Otherwise you can proceed with current mesh
