Hi all,
In the Workbench I have created a fluid domain and 5 solid domains independently and merged all to a fluent. All solids are immersed in the fluid and linked using the mesh interface. Inside solids, I only want to solve heat conduction. I would like to initialize them with different temperatures without using the patch way. My code so far is the following:

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_INIT(initMaterial, domain)
  cell_t c;
  Thread *t1 = Lookup_Thread(domain, 77);
  Thread *t2 = Lookup_Thread(domain, 74);
  Thread *t3 = Lookup_Thread(domain, 71);
  Thread *t4 = Lookup_Thread(domain, 68);
  Thread *t5 = Lookup_Thread(domain, 65);
  /*----------------body 1 -----------------*/
  thread_loop_c (t, domain)
	  /* loop over all cells  */
	  begin_c_loop (c, t)
		  C_T(c, t) = 500.;
      end_c_loop (c, t)
  /*----------------body 2 -----------------*/
    thread_loop_c (t2, domain)
      begin_c_loop (c, t2)
		  C_T(c, t2) = 600.;
      end_c_loop (c, t2)

	/*----------------body 3 -----------------*/
  thread_loop_c (t3, domain)
      begin_c_loop (c, t3)
		  C_T(c, t3) = 700.;
      end_c_loop (c, t3)
  /*----------------body 4 ----------------- */
  thread_loop_c (t4, domain)
      begin_c_loop (c, t4)
		  C_T(c, t4) = 800.;
      end_c_loop (c, t4)
	/*----------------body 5 -----------------*/
  thread_loop_c (t5, domain)
      begin_c_loop (c, t5)
		  C_T(c, t5) = 900.;
      end_c_loop (c, t5)
I have hooked the UDF in initialization, I manage to compile and initialize without any issues but when I check temperatures with isolines they don't match with the ones I want.

Can anyone help me? I have been searching for something similar but everything in my code looks logical and can't figure out I is it being ignored.
Thank you all for your help.
