I need to access a data from a transient profile file to use in my UDF.
I have time varying angle value (e.g. profile_name theta).
Has anyone programmed a UDF to perform this task?...

from UDF: I need to say
angle = ??? <-- needs to be equated to (profile_name theta) at current time as theta is a time varying quantity.

Please post a solution if you have one.

Dear all,
I have the same problem at the moment: I want to access the data of a normal velocity pattern/profile of the type
((velocity transient xx 1)
via an UDF, since I want to create a parabolic velocity profile at the inlet which needs to use the maximal velocity at each time step.
Does anybody have any idea?
Thank you in advance!
