Default 3d velocity profile

Hello Everyone,

Did anybody know adding 3d UDF velocity profile of Ux= 0.06*pow(10*y,0.13), Uy=Uz=0 to Fluent6.1? It is the boundary layer profile (power law). For 2d I am OK. But for 3D, things seem very complicated for me. I could not figure it out. Could somebody help me out? Thanks in advanced.

It's just the same as in 2D. You just need to know that in the cell centroid vector, x is in position 0, y is in position 1 and z is in position 2.

The function should be the following. Hook it in FLUENT BC panel to your inlet, in the x-velocity box.


DEFINE_PROFILE(my_Ux, t, i)
{
cell_t c;
real x[ND_ND];
real y;

begin_c_loop (c,t)
{
C_CENTROID(x,c,t);
y =x[1];
F_PROFILE(c,t,i) = 0.06*pow(10*y,0.13);
}
end_c_loop (c,t)
}


Hi
