Hi Friends,
I want to simulate the pressures generated in hydrodynamic journal bearing. Can anyone help me? I need either tutorial or the ready made UDF for the same or the link where i will get help.
Also i want to convert fortran program on bearing in UDF. How to do that? Kindly help.
Thanks in advance.

There are two udfs which can help you.

First is about pressure control at the end of each iteration etc

#include "udf.h"


Domain *d;
Thread *t;
cell_t c;
face_t f;

d = Get_Domain(1); 

begin_c_loop (c,t)
		if (C_P(c,t)<=0.0) 
end_c_loop (c,t)

		if (C_P(c,t)<=0.0) 

Second will model viscosity as function of temperature

/* ************************************************************ */

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_PROPERTY(cell_viscosity, c, t)

real mu_laminar, temp, pres; 

temp = C_T(c, t);

pres = C_P(c, t); 

mu_laminar = 0.0127*exp(0.000000213345*(pres-101345))*exp(0.029*(temp-293));

return mu_laminar;
