Hi

Is it possible to find the temperature of nodes (not cells) through udf?

Thanks Parsa

Isn't temperature stored at the cell centre rather than nodes for finite volume discretization?

If so then the answer is no, there aren't temp values at nodes.

Thanks Phil. I thought Fluent might interploate among the cells for the nodes temperture. In fact the output file of Fluent for Tecplot, provides the information ( including the temperature)at the nodes (I think).

Ah,

Have you looked at the UDF guide to see it you could access them quickly that way?

I could not find anything. It seems except velocity components , the other quantities are available just in cell's center.
