UDF Define_Init velocity profile

1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,

I really need your help for a scholar modeling. I want to create as an initial condition on inlet, a velocity profile quite simple : if y<2.5 then U=0, else U=2*y.

The problem is that I never used C language in my life and so as a complete rookie I'm quite lost...

Below you'll find what I've tried to write by copying other examples found on the net.

Thanks a lot for every little help you could give me (and sorry for my english)

Best Regards

It's a bit too late for my scholar deadline but nevertheless, I'm really interested to know how should I have done this ! So I welcome your help if it's still possible.

I guess the problem is due to this part:
y=F_CENTROID(y,f,t);

you need to define real y[ND_ND];
then
F_CENTROID(y,f,t);
so your x coordinate will be y[0] and y coordinate will be y[1]
--------------------------------------------------------------
#include "udf.h"
DEFINE_INIT(udfinit,d)
{
cell_t c;
real x[ND_ND];
real y;

/* loop over all cell threads in the domain */
{
/* loop over all cells */
begin_c_loop_all (c,t)
{
F_CENTROID(x,c,t);
y=x[1]
if y>2.5
C_U(c,t)=0

else
C_U(c,t)=2*y
}
end_c_loop_all(c,t)
}
}
