dear all:
i come across a udf problem. the case ran well without the udfs. but when the udfs were compiled, built and loaded, the error signal would appear and the interation would not process a bit.
here is the error signal:

Error:
FLUENT received fatal signal (ACCESS_VIOLATION)
1. Note exact events leading to error.
2. Save case/data under new name.
3. Exit program and restart to continue.
4. Report error to your distributor.
Error Object: ()

the udfs are compiled and loaded successfully as:
xforce.c
yforce.c
zforce.c
uds.c
Generating Code...
# Generating udf_names.c because of makefile xforce.obj yforce.obj zforce.obj uds.obj

and here is one code of my udfs and the rest of the udfs all share with the same structure:
#include"udf.h"

#include"metric.h"
DEFINE_SOURCE(xforce_source,c,t,dS,eqn)

real uy;
real uz;
real cp;
real A;
real con;
real tx;
real tgx;
real source;
real x[ND_ND];
real ur;
real sc;
real sp;
C_CENTROID(x,c,t);
dens=C_R(c,t);
u=C_U(c,t);
v=C_V(c,t);
w=C_W(c,t);
ux=C_DUDX(c,t);
uy=C_DUDY(c,t);
uz=C_DUDZ(c,t);
A=C_UDSI(c,t,0);
tx=C_T_G(c,t)[0];
con=-0.02;
ur=v*uy+u*uz;
sc=dens*ur+con*A*tx;
sp=dens*ux;
source=sp*u+sc;
dS[eqn]=sp;
return source;
}

please tell me what's wrong with my udf and how could i correct it.
thank you!

Note that gradient variables are
available only when the equation for that variable is being solved. For example, if you
are defining a source term for energy, your UDF can access the cell temperature gradient
(using C_T_G), but it cannot get access to the x-velocity gradient (using C_U_G). The reason for this is that the solver continually removes data from memory that it doesn't need. In order to retain the gradient data (when you want to set up user-defined scalar transport equations, for example), you can prevent the solver from freeing up memory by issuing the text command

solve/set/expert

and then answering yes to the question Keep temporary solver memory from being freed?.

Note that when you do this, all of the gradient data is retained, but the calculation requires more memory to run.
