AB Turbulent wall-bounded flows are commonly encountered in engineering practice and are of considerable interests in a variety of industrial applications. This presence of wall significantly affects turbulence characteristics. If we want to solve the near-wall region a very fine mesh is necessary. The number of points needed increases at least like Re^{1.8}. This requirement makes the application of Large Eddy Simulation (LES) for high Reynolds (order of 10^{6}−10^{8}) practically impossible. One solution is to apply near-wall modification, or wall models with a coarse mesh near the wall. When the grid is not fine enough to resolve near-wall structure, the near-wall must be modeled by specifying a correlation between the velocity in first node and shear stress at the wall. The objective of this study is to implement wall-function for LES simulation of channel flow. The sub-grid scales are modeled using Smagorinsky and Wale model. The first node is placed at *y*^{+} ∼ 49 for Re_{τ} = 4000 and 54 ≤ *y*^{+} ≤ 200 for Re_{τ} = 16000. So the first node was located in log-law region and standard wall function was applied. Other modification was introduced in the calculation of the length-scale in the Smagorinsky model using the model proposed by Mason-Callen [7]. Another model introduced was the Werner-Wengler model [6].
