Hi all,

Is it possible for us to define a function in UDF that outputs a vector (array) instead of a scalar?
I could not find an example.

Thanks,
Ali

typically, the DEFINE macro you use specifies the required output of the function. This may be a vector - for example, when using the DEFINE_VR_RATE macro the return needs to be a vector. It depends on the sort of data FLUENT is expecting.

Of course, within the UDF itself, you can use all the arrays you want.

Thank you Cees for your reply.
Can I use DEFINE macro to define a vector field?
For example whenever we want to define a scalar function, we use somthing like this:

real func1(cell_t c, Threat *t){
.
.
.
}

Is there something similar to this for defining vector functions?

Thanks,
Ali
