Yes possible, but why do you require to use adjust macro. You can directly store some variable into memory in unsteady macro itself.

Thanks Mahesh. I am calculating all UDMs in the adjust macro. Just wanted to know if one of them can be directly plugged in as the explicit term of the unsteady uds term.
Also one more question: I am trying to use the implicit part of the same uds to calculate one of the other UDMs. That specific UDM is hooked as a mass source term in the "vapor" phase of a VOF model. Can this be possible? All I am aware of is that the VOF equation is calculated first (which will require the vapor phase source term) and the uds equation is calculated at the last, so the coupling cannot be done if a segregated solver is used. What's your stance?

It is possible to store all UDM through adjust macro. Do this for few iteration and check contours it it meets your expectation.
This coupling is possible. You have to be cautious about under relaxation and type of discretization scheme. Best wishes Mvee

Speaking of coupling and under relaxation factors, I have been having xmomentum divergence while running this same code. I know that in a segregated solver, first adjust macro is run, and then Fluent calculates the xmomentum equation. Divergence at this point would indicate I am doing something wrong in the adjust macro?

hello people!!
I am working on mhd module of fluent for the simulation of m.r. fluid in magnetic field. I am facing problem in writing the udf for the magnetic body force that can be applied to the whole fluid. Also, if i am specifying any value of flux density in mhd module, how that value will be stored in the variable used for flux density in the udf. Please help. Thanking in advance, Subham

Dear Shashank
Yes, It can be possible to use UDM values. Please keep remind that you will have only cell centered values of UDM, no face values. Best wishes Mvee

udf to incorporate body force in mhd module

I actually want to apply a magnetic field on a moving magnetic fluid. We have to couple the fluid flow and the mhd model. For this , we need to incorporate a body force which we have to give through udf. The formula is as follows:
F(x) = (m*s*B(x)*(dB(x)/dx))/U Where F(x) is the force, m is the mass of fluid, B(x) is the magnetic field strength, U is the permeability of the free space. As the magnetic field strength will vary at every x position, how to incorporate that in the udf and how to access the value of magnetic field in the udf? The code which we have written is as follows: #include "udf.h" DEFINE_DPM_BODY_FORCE(mhd_dpm_force,p,i) /* This file needs to be "interpreted" in FLUENT before it can be used */ { face_t f; Thread *t; real b_force=0; if(i==1) { b_force=0.00833*1800/(4*3.14*(10^7)*4)*F_UDSI(f,t,1)*F_UDSI_G(f,t,1); } return b_force; } please help..

F_UDSI_G(f,t,1) wont work. Gradient would be used on cell centered values not face values. In order to use it use adjacent cell values.
You can incorporate following in your code. For more help on it use help manual. c0 = F_CO(), t0 =THREAD_T0() C_UDSI_G(c0,t0,<index of UDS>)[0]

Do you want to use dBx/dx on boundaries? if yes then only use above macro otherwise you can directly use C_UDSI_G()[0]
