How to get the coordinates and velocities at the grid center and nodes simultaneously
 
when fluent is calculating, i want to export the coordinates and velocities at the grid center and nodes together to a data file. How should I do?

Do you want to do this for every iteration?

Anyway, the macros you are looking for are

Code:

C_CENTROID(x,c,t); //coords of cell centre
C_U(c,t) //flow velocity x
C_V(c,t) //flow velocity y
C_W(c,t) //flow velocity z

Just loop over all the cells in the domain with

Code:

begin_c_loop(cell,thread)
{
}
end_c_loop(cell,thread)

hey hi i want to know how do we define heat source in fluent

Well, this is the macros for velocities at center of cells. How to export velocities at nodes?

I don´t believe there are any macros for getting the velocities at the nodes. I believe Fluent only solves the velocities for the cell centres. You would have to interpolate betwen the cell centre velocities to get a value for the velocities at the nodes.
