Tushar_Telmasre is on a distinguished road
I am solving solidification problem. I want to track a particular liquid fraction contour i.e. 0.7(C_iiqf=0.7). The final aim is to single out cells where liquid fraction is 0.7 and calculate temperature gradient value at that cell.

to track cells with liquid fraction 0.7. I followed following algorithm.

1. check whether the value of liquid fraction in particular cell is 0.7
2. if yes, A user defined memory(which I defined before) will have a value of 1.
3. if no, the user defined memory value will be 0.
4. loop over all cells and threads.

here is my UDF
#include "udf.h"

Domain *d;
Thread *t;
cell_t c;
d = Get_Domain(1);
if ( C_LIQF(c,t)==0.7)


I am expecting cells where liquid fraction is 0.7 have udm value 1 and rest cells have udm value 0. but at the end of the calculation I am getting all cells with udm value 1.
when I displayed contours of liquid fraction in solidification/melting I am getting region with liquid fraction 0.7.
