Hello

I want to write a UDF for periodic boundary condition in Fluent. I have to take temperature and velocity data points from outlet and feed it back to inlet. I was going through the fluent manual and found that there are two functions, DEFINE_PROFILE and DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END. I am not sure if I can write a function within a function as required by this case. If anyone else has encountered the same issue, could you please throw some light.

Have you tried using the periodic boundary condition, or do you need to use a UDF? Instructions: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/flu...-tutorial.html
