Anybody has experience of using user code capability of Star-CCM+?
Where can I find the complete list of the stored variables of Star-CCM+ that can be used by the user code? The manual only gives a partial list of the stored variable. Where Can I find the full list, and where can I find more examples?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Why do you need user code? What are you trying to accomplish?

I am doing electrochemical-thermal coupled modeling of Li-ion batteries. I have my own code for solving the electrochemical dynamics. I want to use CCM+ to solve the temperature filed given the heat source generated from my code and then use the temperature to update my electrochemical model. I need a fast implementation because battery simulation is transient; the coupling is needed for each time step. Thanks.

Will the coupling be volume or boundary-wise?

a) if the former, a user code might be needed;
b) if latter, you can do it using JAVA macros.

Anyway, a bird told me they are working in a co-simulation API specific for coupling third party codes. Not sure the release date though.

Thanks for the reply.

I need the volume coupling. I used to do it in STAR-CD using the user code, which is very straight forward to do and efficient.
