Hi,

Is it possible to auto-generate the source code for a Fluent simulation done interactively on the GUI?
Thanks.

Default Think again about how you phrased that question

I think what you are asking is "Can you record a script file of the problem setup", and the answer to that is yes, you can record a journal file. RTFM, it is explained there.

Perhaps my question wasn't phrased clearly enough...no, I wasn't referring to the script file, but to the source code or the programme file in C language that Fluent (and also Gambit) uses to run the simulation process - from the discretization to the boundary condition and material properties setup to the solution process etc... For example, in COMSOL and the MATLAB curve fitting tool, you can generate the m-file (MATLAB source code) that is used to run that particular process. I know we can couple our own UDFs to Fluent, but are we able to see what goes on "behind the scenes" in Fluent itself? Thanks!

Nope, and if, unlike most of us, you bothered to read the license agreement you would probably find a paragraph explicitly prohibiting the "uncompiling" or any other form of reverse-engineering of the code.

That's why FLUENT called the BLACK BOX...

Fluent is a proprietary software. If you look into opensource codes like OepnFOAM, Elmer etc. , you will have an idea of how things are done in Fluent.
