 October 8, 2009, 04:25 Using DEFINE_SPECIFIC_HEAT, How to get the Cell-Pressure? #1 New Member   Join Date: Oct 2009 Posts: 1 Rep Power: 0 at first my code: #include "udf.h" DEFINE_SPECIFIC_HEAT(specific_heat_N2, T, Tref, h, yi) { real cp; real temp = T; real A0 = 1.0787e3; real A1 = 3.059e-1; real A2 = 6.6177e-4; real A3 = 2.6368e-7; real A4 = 2.1333e-12; real A5 = 1.886e-3; real A6 = 273; real Y0; real pressure; pressure = C_P(c,t); Y0 = A0-A1*temp+A2*(pow(temp,2))-A3*(pow(temp,3))- A4*(pow(temp,4)) ; cp = Y0 *(1+A5*((pressure/10e5)-1)*(pow((A6/temp),2.4))); //[J / kg K] *h = cp; return cp; } The problem is that the index variable c and the thread pointer t are not passed to the UDF, but they are needed in the cell-pressure marco. What do I have to do? Last edited by vast01; October 8, 2009 at 04:48.

So if you want to get cell pressure, you have to define thread and domain like below, then you can get it. --- DEFINE_SPECIFIC_HEAT(sample, T, Tref, h, yi) { Domain *domain = Get_Domain(1); Thread *t; cell_t c; real pressure; thread_loop_c(t, domain) { begin_c_loop(c, t) { pressure = C_P(c, t); }end_c_loop(c, t) } } --- NOTE: The above udf duplicates cell loop since DEFINE_SPECIFIC_HEAT loops all cell loop first as itself, so it takes a long time.

About your solution, I don't know how you deal with *h = Cp*(T-Tref); return Cp; these two lines (quoted from DEFINE_SPECIFIC_HEAT example in FLUENT UDF Mannual )in your loop structure: thread_loop_c(t, domain) { begin_c_loop(c, t) { pressure = C_P(c, t); }end_c_loop(c, t) } In my view, every cell must have a h and Cp value returned, but the Macro could have only one value returned. Looking forward to your respond.
