EDIT Nov, 7 2023: Returning to this topic after over 3 years from my last visit, I noticed that this SimScale Forum User Interface no longer allowed links that download external zip files to be followed. All of the zip files shown in this topic can now be downloaded from this yPlusHistogram Google Drive Directory
I did this work a couple months ago and I have decided to do a forum post to make this new metric more available for people that are searching for a better way to evaluate their yPlus mappings.
Here is a project of mine that explains why my new yPlusHistogram program exists : 'yPlus - Metrics to evaluate yPlus achieved in CFD Boundary Layer Analysis' simulation project by DaleKramer
Below is the zip file for yPlusHistogram.exe v2.05 setup program… (extract all file in zip to a temporary folder, then run the setup.exe file in that folder)
This v205 includes the new ORSI by moving average feature (and it will work if you use the European decimals and thousands separator in your Windows setup) !!!
Please see the README.txt file(inside the zip file) for further instructions if needed : http://www.galaxyapps.us/yPlusHistogram_205.zip
I promise, no bad things in my .exe file
Here is the latest version of the program as of July 7, 2020 : http://www.galaxyapps.us/yPlusHistogram_v205a.zip This version will show ORSI values for all 3 axes of both pressure and viscous moment forces. To run this .exe file you must have already run the setup file above for v205 above.
Here is the latest version of the program as of Nov 4, 2023: http://www.galaxyapps.us/yPlusHistogramv205b.zip This version fixes issues that have surfaced over the last 3+ years since v205a, which were mostly issues where some csv files downloaded from the SimScale UI started using double quotes to surround some of the comma separated field values. To run this .exe file you must have already run the setup file above for v205 above.
Here is a video that shows how to use it:
NOTE-THIS IS NOT SHOWN IN THE VIDEO; As of Jan-2020, for some unknown reason, before you export the csv file from ParaView, you may have to drag the yPlus data column to the left of the Area column so that the yPlus data precedes the Area data in each line of the csv file…
EDIT Nov, 5 2023: When downloading the yPlus Area data from the Paraview you should select the last iteration in Paraview as shown here:
Here is a video of using the yPlusHistogram program to analyze the quality of the layering in your meshing log:
