Hello guys.
My study is about blood flow.


I'm a beginner for CFD programs so I have some difficulties to complete my UDF for Inlet velocity.

Inlet velocity has parabolic profile, and the maximum velocity magnitude varies with time.(that is, Velocity is a pulsatile wave form)
I don't have any explicit expression for the velocity wave form but discrete velocity magnitude data vesus undimentionalized timestep.

It's a 3-D pipe flow
Please see the code and data below and give me some advise.
How can i make the correct UFD for my model?

------------------------------------------------------
//udf1
#include <udf.h>
#define R 40
#define UDF_FILENAME "pulse"
DEFINE_PROFILE(inlet_x_velocity, thread, position){
float x[3]; /* this will hold the position vector*/
float r;
int garbage=0;
float umax[60];
int i=0;
face_t f;
FILE *fp= fopen(UDF_FILENAME ,"r");

for (i=0;i=<59 ;i++){
fscanf(fp, "%d, %f",&garbage, &umax++);
begin_f_loop(f, thread){
F_CENTROID(x,f,thread);
r = x[1];
F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = umax[i]*(1.-r*r/R/R));
}
end_f_loop(f, thread)
}
int fclose(fp);
}
