 June 18, 2007, 17:23 UDF problem #1 Dimitris Fidaros Guest   Posts: n/a I have recently started to use UDF and so I am new with it. I want to calculate the average value of user defined scalar on specific face of a 3d domain and to write this value on an ASCII file at the end of time step (transient simulation) but I couldn't manage to compute it. I would appreciate any help on this. Here is the listing I have done. /************************************************** **********************/ * UDF that calculates the average chlorine concentration at outlet face*/ /* and it prints it at external ASCII file and on GUI */ /************************************************** **********************/ #include "udf.h" DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END(chlorine_out_average) { static int last_ts=-1; int cur_ts = N_TIME; real time = CURRENT_TIME; real fa real fi; real tfa; real tfi; real mfi; int n; int id = 4; /* Change id number in order to corespond to right boundary*/ face_t f; Domain *d = Get_Domain(1); Thread *t = Lookup_Thread(d, id); cell_t c; FILE *fp = fopen("usds_story.txt", "w"); begin_f_loop(f, t) { fa = C_AREA(f,t); fi = C_UDSI(c,t,1); tfa += fa; tfi += fi*fa; } end_f_loop(f, t); mfi = tfi / tfa; if (last_ts != curr_ts) { last_ts = curr_ts; fprintf(fp,"Time_Step Time UDS") } fprintf(fp, "%d\ %g\t %g\t14.8E\n", cur_ts, time, mfi); printf("Time Step:%d Time:%g\t UDS:%g\t14.8E\n", cur_ts, time, mfi); } Thanks in advance

I assume that in the variable fa you want to store the face area. the correct macro is F_AREA(f,t) and not C_AREA(f,t). Another thing, to print messages to the console, use the macro Message instead of printf.

 June 19, 2007, 04:16 Re: UDF problem #3 Diego Guest   Posts: n/a Moreover, the correct way to write the Area macro is: F_AREA(A,f,t) , being A the name of the variable. The output A is a vector, not a scalar. If you want to access to C_UDSI(c,t,1) you must say who is "c". You cannot start a loop over faces, so you will be in a face "f" and call for the UDS in the cell "c". Maybe you are trying to call F_UDSI(f,t,i) ? For many variables exists two versions, one for the cell values (macros starting with C_XXX) and another for the interpolated values in faces (macros starting with F_XXX) Greetings, Diego
