Hi everyone,

I am doing a simulation about a moving body. I use DEFINE_CG_MOTION to update the position of the body. However, I found that the macro seems to be executed by every node of the computer. That is to say, if I use 6 processors to do simulation, the macro seems to be executed 6 times (since I insert Message("niter = %f, ntime = %f\n", niter, time) in the macro and the message appeared 6 times in the window). I want to know how to make the macro be executed only once every time step. I tried to add "#if !RP_NODE" to cover all the contents in the macro. However, by doing that, the function do not return the updated velocity so the body did not move at all. So, does anyone know how to figure out this problem? Any suggestion will be appreciated! Thank you!

David

If you have six nodes, and your macro is executed six times... Everything works as intended, not?

Each node should know about the updated positions, so each node has to execute the macro!

Thank you! So it seems that I only need to let the output files such as the fprintf files be executed only once! By the way, If I do a free-motion simulation and when I calculate the total fluid force on the body, should I first use the "#if !RP_HOST" to let the nodes calculate the force and use the "#if RP_NODE" then "force = PRF_GRSUM1(force)" to get the sum of the forces from every node? I see some examples from other users using this form, but the example from the Fluent UDF manual (* 1-degree of freedom equation of motion (x-direction)) did not use any of these "#if !RP_HOST" or "#if RP_NODE" compiler directives. Is there any difference between using these two forms?
