Dear users,

I want to know can we call any stand-alone library (out-side FLUENT of course) like Cantera from UDF in FLUENT/CFX??

I want to make a tool-kit which should be usable for any s/w like FLUENT, OpenFOAM or any in-house code. The idea i have is, i will make a C++ library which can be kept as stand-alone tool in some directory and they call the relevant functions from that library. Now in OF it can be done easily. I want to know whether it is possible to do in FLUENT/CFX or not.

Thank you,
Nilesh

Cantera is callable from FLUENT through UDF (hooked on DEFINE macroses). You can study that http://www.et.byu.edu/~tom/classes/641/Cantera/Workshop/FluentInterface_Oct2004.pdf
Some more information you can get on Google Groups Cantera User's Group and their old group on Yahoo Groups (for example, Vinsenso Mulone and D. Goodwin dialog with codes).

It is a very old post.

What is the benefit I could get if I am linking FLUENT with cantera?
