Greetings all,

I am implementing the Poisson equation for electric field computations, thus there is a need to compute the space charge density in each cell. This charge density is due to steady-state simulation of charged particles using DPM. The code for the UDF is as such:

__________________________________________________ _____________
#include "udf.h"
#include "dpm.h"

DEFINE_SOURCE(space_charge_source,c,t,dS,eqn)
{
real q_m_0 = 5;
real number_of_particle_streams = 30000;
real mass_flow_rate_0 = 0.000000883 / number_of_particle_streams;
real cell_volume = C_VOLUME(c,t);
real charge_flow_rate = q_m_0 * mass_flow_rate_0;
real summation = 0;
Particle *zz;
real residence_time = 0;
real space_charge_density = 0;
begin_particle_cell_loop(zz,c,t)
{
residence_time = P_TIME(zz) - P_TIME0(zz);
space_charge_density = charge_flow_rate * residence_time / cell_volume;
summation = summation + space_charge_density;
}
end_particle_cell_loop(zz,c,t)
real total_space_charge_density = summation;
dS[eqn] = 0;
return total_space_charge_density;
}

__________________________________________________ _____________

Upon compilation in Linux Fluent 6.3, I got the error message (attached screenshot). Please advice me on how to resolve this problem.

Many Thanks
(PS: I am suspecting that calculation of residence time is the problem)
