I want to write a udf for body force that included (fluid velocity minus particle velocity) in x direction.[du/dt-dv/dt].
can anybody help me how to write du/dt?

first you should specify the cell index that contains particle, then you can use:
du=C_U(c,t)-C_U_M1(c,t)

this formula that you wrote,was just for du/dt? I read in help of fluent that the velocity of particle is shown with P_VEL(P)[i] that p is particle tracked and i represnts the coordinate. can you explain the terms that you wrote for that formula?

Hi iman,
first I think that you mean acceleration difference?am I right?
yes it's for the flow field part:
Code:
du/dt=(C_U(c,t)-C_U_M1(c,t))/CURRENT_TIMESTEP;
for particle part, you can implement user scalars for particles.

Hi Amir
thanks for your answering. yes, I mean relative acceleration between fluid and particle. I know that c_u(c,t) is u(cell,thread). but what is U_M1(c,t)? and I have to duplicate exactly "CURRENT_TIMESTEP" to my udf? I owe you lot!!thank you very much Amir

Hi iman,
C_U_M1(c,t) : flow x-velocity in previous one time step
CURRENT_TIMESTEP : flow time step, you should use that to make your UDF independent of FLUENT changes in time step.

regards,

Amir

Hi amir
what is your comment aboat this udf?
# include "udf.h"
/* this udf insert a body force on particle in DPM model(A(du/dt-dv/dt)),A is a constant
that is known*/
DEFINE_DPM_BODY_FORCE(particle_body_fprce,cell,thr ead,p)
{
real bforce;
bforce= A((((C_U(cell,thread)-C_U_M1(cell,thread))/CURRENT_TIMESTEP)-((P_VEL(P)[0]-P_VEL_M1(P)[0])/CURRENT_TIMESTEP)));
return bforce;
}

Hi Iman,
I'm not sure that P_VEL_M1(p) exists in dpm.h library!
if it exist, that's true else you can implement user scalars for particles.

Hi amir
I implemented the udf and fluent took this error:
line 7: non-integer subscript expression: pointer to structure.
do you know what that means?

Hi,
it means that something is wrong in variables storage. i.e. you have stored a pointer parameter in a structure kind one.
in above UDF, use A*(...) syntax, also check the validity of P_VEL_M1 function.

regards,

Amir

# include "udf.h"
/* this udf insert a body force on particle in DPM model(A(du/dt-dv/dt)),A is a constant

DEFINE_DPM_BODY_FORCE(particle_body_fprce,cell,thr ead,p)

real bforce;
bforce= (0.000000000000000000015)*((((C_U(cell,thread)-C_U_M1(cell,thread))/CURRENT_TIMESTEP)-((P_VEL(p)[0]-P_VEL_M1(p)[0])/CURRENT_TIMESTEP)));
return bforce;
}
how can I check the validity of P_VEL_M1?
regards

you can check the validity a function by viewing it's header in src folder, I checked that and it didn't exist so you should use particle scalar array for your purpose as follow:
first you should specify the No. of scalar array in model->discrete phase->UDF tab->user variables -> increase to 1.
use this code. I didn't check that before:
Code:
# include "udf.h"
int n=0;
DEFINE_DPM_BODY_FORCE(particle_body_force,p,i)
{
Thread *t=P_CELL_THREAD(p);
cell_t c=P_CELL(p);
real bforce;
if(n==0) p->user[0]=0.0;
bforce= (1.5e-20)*((C_U(c,t)-C_U_M1(c,t))/CURRENT_TIMESTEP-(P_VEL(p)[0]-p->user[0])/CURRENT_TIMESTEP);
p->user[0]=P_VEL(p)[0];
n+=1;
return bforce;
}

Hi amir,
Thanks for your help,
when I interpret your code there is a error:
line 5: P_CELL_THREAD: undeclared variable

Hi Iman,
I checked that as a compiled one, it didn't have any error!
compile your UDF instead.

Hi amir
I dont know but something is wrong.I couldent compile that code. I use fluent 12. does it affect? I think there shouldnt be many different between interpret & compile a udf?the version of visual studio is important?

Hi Iman,
you can't interpret this UDF because P_CELL and P_CELL_THREAD need FLUENT solution, so you should compile that.
for compiling you need visual C++ 2000 or newer(at least ver 6.) installed on your PC. and ensure that VC++ is linked with FLUENT and your file name doesn't have any space... .
I've checked that before as compiled one. if you post the errors during compilation, I may help you.

hi amir
when I compile udf the fluent gives the following error:
(chdir "libudf")()
(chdir "win64\2ddp")()
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Done.

Hi,
you don't have linked FLUENT with VC++.
for more information refer to:

I have run fluent from VC command prompt, but again i recieved these errors,I'm totally confused!

there is no difference which udf I want to compile. every udf that I want to compile,fluent gives that error.
