 April 1, 2005, 02:12 UDS question #1 Z Guest   Posts: n/a How to access the previous iteration data of uds is it C_UDSI_M1(c,t,0) and this is just of time step ?

 April 2, 2005, 08:11 Reply to ap #5 Z Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I posted this questions long back and saw your reply. 1) I would like to know when UDS is solved at what positions scalar is solved is it after k and epsilon equation or before k and epsilon equation. 2) I wrote an UDS and it was not working fine it generally gives me values less than 0 and more than 1. When I browsed in this site I cam to know when scalar values are less than 0 then it should be set 0 and more than 1 value should be set to 1. Is this correct what I am doing? 3)When I used this setting discussed above Everything seems to be okay but the problem is URF in that case should not be more than 0.1 and if I use URF to be more than 0.1 then fluent gives me very big numbers e+20 something like that. So the problem is that simulation is very slow with URF is there any solution to this problem. Your reply was 1) Go to Control -> Solution -> Multigrid and increase the verbosity parameter. (Can you explaine me more here) 2) What do you mean with less than 0 and more than 1? It depends on the problem you're solving. When you implement a UDS equation in FLUENT you should write it in its dimensional form. So the values of the variable are not bounded in the standard range [0; 1]. (I am solving for a scalar which is just values from 0 and 1) Z

However, UDS should be solved after other variables. For your scalar equation, I should have more information, What kind of equation is it? What's its coefficients? What are the boundary conditions? Best regards, ap
