Dear all,

I wish to impose a transient temperature profile to my inlet boundary condition. I have liquid entering a system at 300K and after 40s, I would like the liquid to enter at 340K, in brief:

when 0<t<40s, T=300K
when t>=40s, T=340K

I know that this is manageable by using UDF, but since I'm very new to UDF and to C programming language, I'd appreciate if anybody could provide me with a sample code to define the said profile.

many thanks.

Have figured it out. Here is the script, hope it might be of help to others:

#include "udf.h"

real x[ND_ND];
real time;
face_t f;

Hello Everyone;

I am using fluent and I have transient experimental temperature data for a surface in excel format. I want to import them to fluent and run. How can I do that? Is there anyone who has the code of this. The code that is written above is a good example but I have 45820 temperature datas and these datas are changing in 1 s . So I have to read the file directly and than run it . Could you help me ?

Thank you very much.
