Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem I am having regarding defining a wall surface reaction UDF. I am trying to model platelet transport in blood and platelet interaction with blood vessel walls. I have defined two platelet species (gas species), Resting Platelets (RP) and Activated Platelets (AP). I have a source term for each of the species and I am trying to define a reactive wall flux term that accounts for platelet deposition on the vessel walls.
In the DEFINE_SR_REACTION macro, I have defined 2 wall surface reactions - reaction-1 for RP flux to the wall and reaction-2 for AP flux to the wall
In the UDF I am returning a reaction rate value in the pointer *rr (kmole/m^2-s)
In the Edit Reactions dialogue box (Problem Setup -> Materials -> mixture-template -> Reactions-Edit) I have set the following parameters:

Reactant Specie = RP, Stoic. Coeff. = 1, Rate Exponent = 1
Product Specie = RP, Stoic Coeff. = 1, Rate Exponent = 0

Reactant Specie = AP, Stoic Coeff. = 1, Rate Exponent = 1
Product Specie = AP, Stoic Coeff. = 1, Rate Exponent = 0

When I run the model I see no flux of AP or RP to the wall surface and I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have modeled so many combustion problems. What is the problem. He may have not written the UDF correct.
