Hi Everybody!!

Im working with UDF along with the Discrete Ordinate model radiation and i need to know how to obtain the surface incident radiation by an UDF.

Currently, i know that the C_DO_IRRAD(c,t,nb) macro give me the incident radiation, but i need the incident radiation in a surface by an UDF (given in the GUI by Wall Fluxes-Surface Incident Radiation).

If any want can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you very much.

I tried with the macro F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,nb), however, I have a zero result . Here is my simple code:

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_ON_DEMAND(F_DO)
{
Domain *d=Get_Domain(1);
int ID = 16; /*Boundary condition ID*/
Thread *t = Lookup_Thread(d,ID);
face_t f;
real temp=0;
real sum=0;

begin_f_loop(f,t) /*Loop over all faces*/

{
temp=F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,0);
sum+=temp;
}
end_f_loop(f,t)

}

When i call the variable sum, it gives me a zero result.
Can anyone help me?

Thanks

How did you call variable sum?
You have nothing in your code regarding output

Sorry for copy the code incomplete...

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_ON_DEMAND(F_DO)
{
Domain *d=Get_Domain(1);
int ID = 16; /*Boundary condition ID*/
Thread *t = Lookup_Thread(d,ID);
face_t f;
real temp=0;
real sum=0;

begin_f_loop(f,t) /*Loop over all faces*/

{
temp=F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,0);
sum+=temp;
}
end_f_loop(f,t)
printf("Suma1 temp: %f\n",sum);
}


Thanks

specify your question clear
code above should be:
Code:
#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_ON_DEMAND(F_DO)
{
Domain *d;
int ID = 16; /*Boundary condition ID*/
Thread *t = Lookup_Thread(d,ID);
face_t f;
d=Get_Domain(1)
real temp=0;
real sum=0;

begin_f_loop(f,t) /*Loop over all faces*/

{
temp=F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,0);
sum+=temp;
}
end_f_loop(f,t)
sum = PRF_GRSUM1(sum);
Message("Suma1 temp: %f\n",sum);
}
take into account that ID = 16 is id of wall, which is different for your case, check correct ID for your case in fluent GUI

Dear,

here is what my ending of the code looks like

Code:
    
    UREF = urefData[induref];
    TACREF = tacrefData[indtacref];
    RHREF = rhrefData[indrhref];

    l1 = log((zrefu - (2 / 3) * hgrass) / (0.123 * hgrass));
    l2 = log((zrefh - (2 / 3) * hgrass) / (0.0123 * hgrass));
    ra = (l1 * l2) / (pow(k, 2) * UREF);
    lamda = 1.91846 * pow(10, 6) * pow(((TACREF + 273.15) / (TACREF + 239.24)), 2);
    delta = (4098 * 610.8 * exp((17.27 * TACREF) / (TACREF + 237.3))) / pow((TACREF + 237.3), 2);
    esat = (1.0007 + 3.46 * pow(10, -8) * patm) * 611.21 * exp(((18.678 - TACREF / 234.5) * TACREF) / (257.14 + TACREF));
    D = (1 - RHREF) * esat;
    gamma = patm * aircp * pow((0.622 * lamda), -1);

    begin_f_loop(f, thread)
    {
        F_CENTROID(x, f, thread);
        y = x[1];
        Incedent_Radiation= C_DO_IRRAD(x,f,thread);
        E = (delta * Incedent_Radiation + 1.225 * aircp * D / ra) / (delta + gamma * (1 + rs / ra));
        F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = E;
    }
    end_f_loop(f, thread)
}
if you look at the E equation, I have Incedent_Radiation variable which I want to use the value to the walls that I am applying this UDF to.

I'm getting error BCS Incident_Radiation is not defined. Do I just plug your code above this section?

where did you get it? why did you put part of code?

are C_DO_IRRAD(x,f,thread); and F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,0); the same? (no)
you need
Code:
F_DO_IRRAD_SHELL(f,t,0);
inside face loop

probably "Incident_Radiation" is not defined just because you didn't define that variable in your code

Dear, sorry for the inconvenience.

I did not include the complete code because I thought that it was too long to be displayed here, sorry for that

I will include it below after following your advice, I'm not actually sure of what I did, so please tell me if this should work as intended.

I did not get any errors when interpreting this one so I hope it works as intended. i spent a lot of time on this bcs I have no background on UDFs and could not find a clear reference.

thanks in advance

I did not get any errors. I was just asking if its "technically" correct.
