ACCESS VIOLATION
Greetings all,
I am trying to apply an external magnetic field into my system by using the concept of magnetic nozzle. I solved the magnetic field equation for a single helholtz coil and simply used superposition principle to add up the magnetic field contribution from all helmholtz coil. Now I was able to interpret the code into FLUENT, but when I try to hook the code through EXECUTE_ON_DEMAND, FLUENT returns an error message saying, "ACCESS VIOLATION' Would anyone know how to overcome this problem? I also get the same error message when I try to solve the magnetic induction equation... but here's the code only for the generation of external magnetic field. #include "udf.h" #include "sg.h" #include "mem.h" #define EX 0 /*Strenght of imposed Electric field in X direction*/ #define EY 0 /*Strenght of imposed Electric field in Y direction*/ #define EZ 0 /*Strenght of imposed Electric field in Z direction*/ #define sigma_e 800 /*conductivity of midium in mho/m*/ #define Ckn 0.5 /*Closure coefficient in Interaction term for k equation*/ #define Cen 1.0 /*Closure coefficient in Interaction term for epsilon equation*/ #define Lmag 0.005 /*Length Scale for Magnetic term in turbulent dissipation*/ #define permeability 1.2566371*pow(10,-6) /*Permeability of vacuum or air in N/A^2*/ #define I 1000.0/*Current around the helmholtz coil at throat in Amp*/ #define rt 0.25/*Radius of Throat of magnetic nozzle in meters*/ #define ri 0.5/*Radius of magnetic nozzle inlet in meters*/ #define ro 0.5/*Radius of magnetic nozzle outlet in meters*/ #define lsys 5/*Total length of the system i.e. length from inlet to outlet in meters*/ #define nc 50/*Number of coils that will be used to simulate the magnetic nozzle */ #define cp -1/*Nozzle convergence point in meters note: it will simply be used to form the nozzle mathematically */ #define dp +1/*Nozzle divergence point in meters note: it will simply be used to form the nozzle matehmatically */ #define czp 0/*Zero point of the converging in meters note: again, for mathematical modeling purpose*/ #define dzp 0/*Zero point of the divergering in meters note: again for mathematical modeling purpose*/ #define tzp 0.5/*Zero point of the thorat in meters note: again for mathematical modeling purpose*/ #define nix -2.5 /*inlet location from center of axis in meters */ #define ntx 0 /*throat location from center of axis in meters */ #define nox 2.5 /*outlet location from center of axis in meters */ DEFINE_ON_DEMAND(Define_B_Field) { int i, r[nc], x[nc];

I'm thinking that if I know what the problem is in this, I could figure out how to fix my induction code as well. -Will |

Re: ACCESS VIOLATION
Dear all,
I've figured my problem. I didn't define the number of user memory before I hooked it. Thank you if you were taking a look at my code anyways :) Will |
