Default UDF velocity and temperature
Posts: n/a

My problem involves variation of velocity as well as temperature at the inlet boundary condition(BC). I have a UDF for variation of velocity and plugged in the velocity inlet BC after interpreting it. AFter writing a UDF for temperature variation, I could not plug in this UDF in the momentum column of velocity inlet BC.

Velocity & Temperature varitaion UDF is written using DEFINE_PROFILE function.

Iam a new user of UDF.PLease help me. How to give both variations in single velocity inlet BC.

Regards Raj.

Dear Raj see example velocity profile should be writing this UDF in C_programing or C++ and save at as CPP extension file. after interpreting this UDF find it at boundary condition. with best regads emad **************************************** vprofile.c

UDF for specifying steady-state velocity profile boundary condition ************************************************** **********************/ #include "udf.h"

DEFINE_PROFILE(inlet_x_velocity, thread, position) { real x[ND_ND]; /* this will hold the position vector */ real y; face_t f;

begin_f_loop(f, thread)



y = x[1];

F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = 20. - y*y/(.0745*.0745)*20.;

} end_f_loop(f, thread) }

hOW TO USE EXPERIMENTAL data and not an equation, for time-dependent heat flux boundary condition ?

My data (of time and heat flux) are these listed below:
