Dear Teguh,
As far as I know k-w is used for modeling turbulence flow through complex geometries. Yes, controlling Y+ on wall is not easy, but again its the only solution. If you are using some turbulence model you should try to closely match its Y+ requirements or at least the deviation from standard y+ values must not be very large, how large?, its another question.
Another Solution to your problem could be use of some other turbulence model. Like k-e or S-A. k-e has a y+ requirement of 30-300 and S-A has a y+ requirement of 0<y+<1 or 30<y+. If you could elaborate your problem a bit it would get more easy to suggest some more close and possible solution.

Awais

Dear Awais,
Well,  I use experiment data of Sandia National Laboratories. My turbulence is k-w SST. I've read that the correct value of Y+ = 1-2. But it's hard for me to make boundary layer to get that value of Y+. Any suggestion??
Thank you
regards

Dear Teguh,
Cd is always hard to predict with CFD, in fact its the trickiest part of CFD to match your value of Cd with that of authenticated experimental value. Firstly you need to have an authenticated data to compare your results with. In case you have the authenticated experimental data and you can't match your Cd with that, you need to check your turbulence model. Drag in CFD simulations consists of two components i.e. pressure drag and viscous drag. Its the viscous drag that is problematical if your turbulence model is not correct. I don't know which turbulence model you are using, you should try using a different turbulence model. Also keep a track of the Y+ values on the wall, there is different requirement of wall y+ for each turbulence model. But before doing all this check you solution properly for convergence and y+.

Dear Mr mahdi

Thanks for your reply. I'll try ^^. I've other question for you, when i wanna simulate an airfoil GOE type. there is some thing wrong. The value of Cl is close to hand book but Cd is far to hand book. what's wrong with my simulation??
