Dear All,

I need UDF representing a logarithmic variation for temperature as boundary condition in one wall of my geometry. I appreciate you advice me. (2D problem)

The temperature varies logarithmically from x=0,y=225mm from 75 (centigrade) to x=1000 mm,y=225 to 21(centigrade). there is no z direction. I appreciate if you guide me.

Use the DEFINE_PROFILE macro (see the UDF manual). Write out the temperature equation as a function of x as you'll need to code this function into the UDF. The first example in the UDF manual applies a parabolic pressure profile which should give you a starting point for your code.

Hi!


It is easy as it said by others. just find an equation representing your temperature variation in Kelvin and add it to the below UDF. That's it!

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_PROFILE(inlet_x_temperature, thread, position)
{
real x[ND_ND]; /* this will hold the position vector */
real y;
face_t f;

begin_f_loop(f, thread)
{
F_CENTROID(x,f,thread);
y = x[1];
F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = Your Equarion;
}
end_f_loop(f, thread)
}

mmunige is an unknown quantity at this point
Respected members

I have to write a UDF for temperature variation along with time and flow domain. actually temperature is varying with time at four points in flow domain, (different relation for time and temperature at these points.
for example at x=0.20m i have following code:
DEFINE_PROFILE(solid_temperature,thread,position )

{
face_t f;
begin_f_loop(f,thread)
{

real t = RP_Get_Real("flow-time");
if ( t <= 100.0 )

{

F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 379.48 + 0.0004*t;
}
else if (100.0 < t && t <= 180.0 )
{
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = -8.34641*pow(10,-6)*pow(t,4.0)+ 5.49800*pow(10,-3)*pow(t,3.0)- 1.35243*pow(t,2.0)+ 1.47648*pow(10,2.0)*t - 5.51650*pow(10,3.0);
}
else

{
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 727.82;
}
}
end_f_loop(f,thread)

}
at x=0.40m (second point) i have following relations:

if ( t <= 100.0 )

{
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 379.48 + 0.0004*t;
}
else if (100.0 < t && t <= 180.0 )
{
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 0.2716*t + 494.4;
}
else
{
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 727.82;
}
}
end_f_loop(f,thread)
}


and similarly for other 2 points
can any body pl guide me how to include these points in code. i just know how to write variation of temperature with time but i could not find way to write above relations at different points.
Please guide me.
thanks.

hi i have same problem!!!can you please help me?
suppose i have a cylinder shaped cpu and i want a temperature profile on it which is varying with radius and angle!
for example i want this profile: T=25*r+2sin(teta)
teta is from zero to 360 on top of the cylinder.

I have to calculate heat transfer losses from radial surface of the cylinder.
I have written a udf for this but it is showing "segmentation fault".
can you tell me where might be the problem ?

Code:
#include "udf.h"


DEFINE_PROFILE(fluxloss,thread,position)
{
real h;
real T_ext;
face_t f;
begin_f_loop(f,thread)
{
h = 10;
T_ext = 300;
F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) =-10*(WALL_TEMP_INNER(f,thread)-T_ext);
}
end_f_loop(f,thread)

}

The problem is WALL_TEMP_INNER.

We don't know what this is. It is not something standard in Fluent, so it is something that you added. Did you define this somewhere else in your code?


If no: you are putting words that have no meaning in your code, and Fluent does not know what to do with this, so it gives an error.

If yes: tell us how you defined it!

i have followed the link given below::
http://cape-forum.com/index.php/topic,3.0.html

I have also looked for this in fluent and i have found similar to this in a radition model which was define as "WALL_OUTER_TEMPERATURE(f,t)"
