Default Reference Pressure in CFX Junction Box Routines

Hi,

I wonder if there is a way to get the Reference Pressure value within a Junction Box (JCB) Routine.

I cannot use the USER_GETVAR function (only for CEL, and I don't know if it works either). Moreover, while trying the USER_GET_GVAR function (available in JCB) the "pref" or "Reference Pressure" are not recognized as an admissible value for the variable input...

Any suggestions on this?

Thanks in advance

Lorenzo

Dont know your answer offhand, but I am wondering why you need to do that?

Use an expression to set your reference pressure, and reference that.

I have to couple CFX with a 1D thermal hydraulic code, the CFX input should be the most generic (since should be used even from users other than me). So I need to get the assigned Reference Pressure Value in the most generic way...

In the meanwhile, I tried to caluclate it as the difference between average Absolute and Relative Pressures in some part of the computational domain, and it works relatively well. However I still prefer a quicker and more elegant solution, if possible.
