Hello,
I'm designing a UDF that would change the velocity with respect to the specific cell temperature on which the flow is directed of the AC (Simple 2D with one inlet at AC, and outlet at the end of the room. I'll try to attach the picture. Now I know how the flow velocity can be changed w.r.t time in UDF, but i'm having a hard time to code for example if the cell temperature on which the flow is directed is <20 then velocity will be 1 ms-1 if >20 then 3 ms-1. Can someone help? Thanks!

1. Show your UDF, which doesn't work
2. what is "cell" you are talking about

best regards

Hi, i'm currently new at UDF, so apologies. I'll tell you the details:I have the objective:
1- Change the inlet velocity which depends on the temperature of the specific Area (the term cell i used) on which flow is directed, as shown in the figure. I have a code which changes velocity with time. i.e

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
DEFINE_PROFILE(velocity_magnitude, t, i)
{
real velocity;
real the_current_time;
face_t f;

the_current_time = CURRENT_TIME;

if ((the_current_time>=0) && (the_current_time<10))
{
velocity=3;
}
if ((the_current_time>=10)
{
velocity=1.5;
}
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%
But i want to make a code which changes the velocity as the temperature of the area only on which flow is directed (shown in figure) changes eg if T>20 v=3, T<20 v=1.5.
Regards

how could you know in advance location of this area?
if you define coordinates (assuming you know it from the very beginning) tahn you can use F_CENTROID macro to get coordinate of faces of model and compare it with your proposed coordinates.
if faces are inside your proposed region, and you may check the temperature there

you may find good examples in Ansys Fluent Customization manual

best regards

Hi, thank you for replying,
I have found a code that will give the temperature of the cell ID, and have written a code which should change inlet velocity with the Cell ID's temperature. But it isnt working. I would be grateful if someone would find me a solution. I want to change the inlet velocity or better, inlet temperature depending on the cell ID's temperature. The code is this,
#include "udf.h"
real tavg;
DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END(average_temp)
{
Domain *d;
face_t f;
real temper = 0.0;
real A[ND_ND];
real area = 0.0;
real area_tot = 0.0;
int ID = 78; /*this is the ID of the boundary wall that I want to get the temperature from*/
Thread *t;
int zone_ID;
d = Get_Domain(1);
t = Lookup_Thread(d,ID);
tavg = 0.0;
begin_f_loop(f,t)
{
F_AREA(A,f,t);
area = NV_MAG(A)*2.0*M_PI; /*Since the model is axisymmetric, we have to multiply by 2pi*/
area_tot += area;
temper = F_T(f,t); tavg += temper*area;
}
end_f_loop(f,t)
tavg /= area_tot;
printf("Tavg = %g area_tot = %g\n",tavg,area_tot);
}
DEFINE_PROFILE(velocity_magnitude, t, i)
{
real velocity;
face_t f;

if ((tavg>=305))
{
velocity=3;
}
if ((tavg<305))
{
velocity=1.5;
}
begin_f_loop(f,t)
{
F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = velocity;
}
end_f_loop(f,t)
}
I would be grateful if someone posts a solution, since my thesis depends on it
