I need to define aborption coefficient as a function of position x on a wall surface (pipe). FLUENT didn't seen to render it even though it could interprete. What could it be wrong? Couldn't fluent render udf on a surface? Thanks!

Here's my code:

DEFINE_PROPERTY(absorption_coefficient, c, t)
real abs_coeff;
real x[ND_ND];
if (x[0] > 0 && x[0] < 0.2)
abs_coeff = 593.9187;
elseif (x[0] > 0 && x[0] < 0.2)
abs_coeff = 197.6521;
elseif (x[0] > 0 && x[0] < 0.2)
abs_coeff = 177.0521;
elseif (x[0] > 0 && x[0] < 0.2)
abs_coeff = 140.5854;
abs_coeff = 140.5854;
"Abs coefficient for this cell %e = %e", x[0],abs_coeff);
return abs_coeff;

can i modelling asphaltene precipitation that exist in crude oil by uusing ceramic filter monolit by defult formolation in fluent?

i want to modelling separation of asphaltene from crude oil by 19-channel ceramic filter,but i think it is not define in FLUENT that precipitate asphaltene on surface of ceramic channel base on diffrences between pore size.

i must write UDF for this porpuse or not?

most of oil flow must pass through the membrane wall and most of asphaltene must form a gel-layer and precipitation on inner surface od channel.

please help me as soon as possible

thank you so much
