hi,in this udf whats the meaning and aplication of these words:
("real" and "rho" and "cr[ND_ND] and "C_CENTROID(cr,c,t)"

thank u
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' ''''''''''''''''''''''''''
#include "udf.h"
DEFINE_PROPERTY(my_density, c, t)
{
real rho;
real cr[ND_ND];
C_CENTROID(cr,c,t);
if ( cr[0] >= 30. && cr[0] <= 40. && cr[1] >= 10. && cr[1] <= 20.)
{
rho =1000000000;
}

Hi,

"real" is a generic data type returning a "float" when using the single precision solver and "double" when using the double precision solver. The use of "real" thus automatically ensures that you are using the right format.

"rho" is in this case the variable returned from your function. That is, the property you are defining by the DEFINE_PROPERTY() macro will take the value "rho.

"cr[ND_ND]" is an array with ND ("Number of dimensions") values. For instance, if you are running a 2D simulation, "cr" will have two values, "cr[0]" and "cr[1]".

"C_CENTROID(cr,c,t)" is a special macro which stores the position of a cell with pointer "c" and thread "t" in the variable "cr". Hence, in your "if(....)" statement, "cr[0] >= 30. && cr[0] <= 40." checks wheter the x-coordinate of a given cell in your domain ("cr[0]") is on the closed interval 30. to 40., correspondingly, "cr[1]" gives the y-coordinate.

Cheers!
