UDF source term

Hi I am new to UDF in CFD.Iam doing two way coupling(turbulence modulationarticles effecting turbulence) problem in a vertical pipe In writing the code for source term for k equation I am struggling to define ds[eqn]
my source term for k equation is 1(t*/(t*+t_p)) where 1/t*=[1/(0.135(k/e))]+[urel/(0.22k^1.5/e)(turbulent time scale) t_p=rho_p*d_p^2/18*mu (particle response time or particle time constant) rho_p density of the particle d_p diameter of the particle mu viscosity of the fluid urel relative velocity whcich is equal to t_p*g I am trying in this way. #include "udf.h" #define alpha 1 #define dp 0.003 #define rhop 1020 #define u_rel 1 DEFINE_SOURCE(k_source,c,t,dS,eqn) { /* real x[ND_ND]; */ real source; t_p=((dp*dp)*rhop)/(18*C_MU_L(c,t)); /* particle time constant */ 1/t_t=(1/(0.135*(C_K(c,t)/C_D(c,t))))+(u_rel*C_D(c,t)/(0.22*C_K(c,t)^1.5));/* effective turbulent time scale */ source=(2*C_K(c,t)*alpha/t_p)(1(t_t/(t_t+t_p)); /* dS[eqn]= */ return source; } could you please figure out my problem in writing the proper source code

I THINK that you have two options:
1) setting dS = 0 or 2) setting dS = d(Sourceterm)/d(k), where k is the variable that you are solving for. I think k is then you turbulent energy. Kasper/Denmark

Thank you Kasper.U gave me little idea to work.I think I have to do some more changes to the code to run. If it has to derive the Source term with k do I need to assume all the remaining as constants?Please Let me know

Temperaturedependent heat source

Dear all,
i want to apply a heat source that is temperaturedependent. It is a copper winding of an electrical machine, and the resistance of the winding increases with temperature, and consequently the heat loss increases with it. i've look at the following: 1) starting with understanding how DEFINE_PROFILE works for a wall heat generation. 2) looked into a simple code example for DEFINE_SOURCE in ansys help. But, am i right to take the following approach? 1) use DEFINE_SOURCE 2) use C_T to feedback temperature into the temperaturedependent equation to calculate the 'new' heat source value Any comments is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It looks you missed a multiply sign in the source term:
source=(2*C_K(c,t)*alpha/t_p)(1(t_t/(t_t+t_p)); source=(2*C_K(c,t)*alpha/t_p)*(1(t_t/(t_t+t_p)); Define ds[eqn] is simple for this case. Just find the partial derivative to C_K(c,t) of the source term. An undergraduate level math knowledge can get it.
