Default UDF problems - velocity profile
Posts: n/a
Hi everybody.

I'm trying to create a non uniform velocity profile at inlet ; the same as you can find it in the Fluent Docs.

The source code is

#include "udf.h"



real x[ND_ND];

real y;

face_t f;




y = x[1];

F_PROFILE(f,thread,index) = 30.0-30.0*(y*y)/(1.5*1.5)




now i try to compile the source code

--> Define --> User Defined Functions --> Interpreted (as it is shown in the Fluent Docu)

But I always get the error : Error: /.../... : line 2 : syntax Error

Do i overlook something?

Fluent is running on a Linux operating system.

You forgot the semi colon at the line end

oh yes, thx

but there's still the same error ... other udf's (for example residence_time with DEFINE_SOURCE) are working without problems....

Hi, I want to keep velocity inlet in compressible flow.. since compressible flow allows mass flow inlet I kept same mass flow inlet profile... but it keeps changing as simulation progresses. so i wanna keep velocity inlet in a compressible flow problem.. but the simulation strucks some where.. it shows divergence error.. so is there any way to keep velocity inlet in compressible flow with pressure based solver and laminar flow ??
