Getting ANSYS 14 Fluent, Windows 8.1 and VS2013 to compile UDFs

Posted October 27, 2013 at 18:00 by trollreign

1. Goal

I am a beginner at Fluent, and even more so concerning UDF's. I am facing a problem where I have to use a velocity profile at my inlet boundary and later I would like to write code to model an actuator disk. After reading the corresponding sections of the Fluent 14 UDF Manual I felt like I am ready to face the task.

Things didn't go half as smooth as I expected and in the end I spent a weekend getting it to work.

In general, there are 2 different ways to link FLUENT with VC++. In both methods, we need to add fluent to system path which can be easilly done via executing "setenv.exe" which is in FLUENT installation folder.

1) non-permanent method:

In this method, we need to launch FLUENT by VC++ command prompt (which can be found in tools folder of VC++) by simply typing fluent.
In this method, we have to launch FLUENT in this manner whenever we want to compile a UDF....
