Hi!

I'm not shure what you are asking. If you don't know how to write an udf, you should first read Fluent UDF documentation to get the idea what you can do with udfs. There is a lot of examples, tutorials and other usefull stuff to read.

If you allready have a udf and don't know how to put it Fluent you should go to Define-User Define-functions-iterpreted...then you select your function and it becomes a part of Fluent. If you (for example) make a udf velocity you have to select your function at velocity inlet bc... but read the manual for more info.

Why do you need a udf? Usually (for simpler simualtions) you don't need to use it.

Hope I helped...

Hi!

If I understand correctly you want to calculete the grashoff number from a converged solution (you take the temperature and velocity) and then use the result in some equation that defines the new bounary condition. Am I right.

I think you can do this with an udf. Check out the documentation, for example:

have fun
