Hi all,

I am simulating a 2D gas-solid fluidized bed using eulerian/eulerian plus granular flow theory. I have two user-defined memory variables (C_UDMI(0) and C_UDMI(1)) and want to calculate C_UDMI(1) for each cell in my domain using C_UDMI(0) of adjacent cells.

I need to loop over all faces of a cell and find out if the solid mass flux is going into the cell or outside of it. If going into, then I will use the value of C_UDMI(0) of the adjacent cell to find out the C_UDMI(1) value. For this purpose I have written the following UDF:

     Domain *d; 
     Thread *mix, *par_t, *tf,  *t1;
     Thread **pt;
     cell_t c, c1;
     int n, m;

     d = Get_Domain(1);    
     m = 0;
   mp_thread_loop_c (mix,d,pt)
          par_t=pt[1];      /* solid phase */
               c_face_loop(c, par_t, n)  
                  tf = C_FACE_THREAD(c, par_t, n); 
                    c1 = F_C1(tf, par_t);
                    t1 = F_C1_THREAD(tf, par_t);
                    if(F_FLUX(tf, par_t)<0)
                    C_UDMI(c, par_t, 1) += C_UDMI(c1, t1, 0);
                    m += 1;
               C_UDMI(c, mix, 1) /= m;
               m = 0;
                    C_UDMI(c, mix, 1) = -1;
When I try to interpret this UDF I get an error that "non-integer subscript expression: unsigned char." on the following line:

c_face_loop(c, par_t, n)

I would appreciate if you could check the issue and advice if I am going the right way or I have errors in the way of accessing data in my UDF.
