Default UDF Problem
  #1

Hello, I try to get the number of faces for a cell via UDF (function C_NFACES). My code looks like that:

#include "udf.h" DEFINE_PROPERTY(cell_density, cell, thread) { real rho; real temp = C_T(cell, thread); int number = C_NFACES(cell, thread);

rho = 101325/(8.314*temp)*28.966/1000;

return rho; }

Most of it is taken from the Fluent UDF manual. Everything works fine if I delete the line "int number ...". If I write the line to get the number of faces for "cell", I get the following message:

non-integer subscript expression: unsigned char

Could anyone help me to find the mistake? I have nearly given up. I would be thankful for any advice.

Regards Jan

The "number" seems do nothing in the UDF. And I can not find anything incorrect. I think there could be something wrong with the code you have not paste here.

This is all the code I tried at the moment. Okay, here the "number" is still unused, but I wanted to build up my code step by step. But not even this small code is working. I use interpreted UDFs. May that be the problem?

Hi Jan. I compiled your UDF and there's no problem! I suggest always compiling UDFs even if they are quite simple...Luca

Interpreted UDFs are restricted in the use of the C programming language,but compile not. use interpreted UDFs for small, straightforward functions. use compiled UDFs for complex functions that have a significant CPU requirement (e.g., a property UDF that is called on a per-cell basis every iteration). .
