hey guys
i have a problem but i am not so sure if it is due to my fluent or udf or other things
i want to find the pressure distribution around an airfoil (which has a sinusoidal motion) in a water tank. i have written the following code in C:

#include "udf.h"
#define om 0.62831853
#define pi 3.1415926
#define scale 0.1612

/*
x(t)= 2c*cos(wt)
alpha(t)= pi/2 + pi/2*sin(wt)
*/

DEFINE_CG_MOTION(vel, omega, time)
{
real b,u;
u = -2*scale*om*sin(om*time);
b = pi/2*om*cos(om*time);
vel[0] = u;
vel[1] = 0.0;
vel[2] = 0.0;

omega[0] = 0.0;
omega[1] = 0.0;
omega[2] = b;
}


but in fluent after building it in udf compiler, in loading time i am recived the following error;

Opening library "code"...
Error: open_udf_library: The system cannot find the file specified.

Error Object: ()

someone please help me
thank you in advance

If you use Windows as I suspect modify the files view menu in order to let you see the extensions of the known file types.

Hi,

did fluent comile this udf without an error?
If you take a look at the manual, the DEFINE_CG_MOTION is defined the following way:

#define DEFINE_CG_MOTION(name, dt, vel, omega, time, dtime)


So I guess you forgot some variables. And you also didn't give a name, so how did you hook the udf in fluent?

oops thank you but i think i pasted the wrong version of my c file here, in the main version i wrote as follow
DEFINE_CG_MOTION(pilo, dt, vel, omega, time, dtime)
indeed i have put name and other necessary variable!
but still i have the same problem!

Ok,

and do you have all your files in one directory and is there a directory named "code" after compiling?

It sounds as if some environment variables are not set properly.
Did you ever use another UDF before?

cheers
