I want to define a top hat velocity profile at my inlet. I dont know the code to define top hat velocity profile. does any body know it. Please answer.

hi guys,
I want to use a user defined function for velocity inlet for following conditions: v_x = (2/3)*z for z = 0 to 30 v_x = 20 for z = 30 to 70 v_x = (200/3)(2/3)*z for z = 70 to 100 It is for 3D compressor cascade inlet. I do not know how to write such functions. Can anyone help me?

Hello,
I have a 2D axisymmetric geometry where I want to impose a non uniform velocity field in the fluid region (not a boundary, but the internal field). I have the coordinates and the axial and radial velocity components from a previous simulation. How do I go about importing this into the current case. Also is there a better way to store the velocity value other than File > Export? Thanks in advance

Dear Friend,
I am using, DDPM simulation using ANSYS 14.5, for a simple system. I used inlet as periodic and outlet as shadow in ANSYS for making it periodic but after making periodic I have no control on the inlet (I am unable to specify mass flow rate inlet), it is showing option to specify pressure gradient. Thanks for helping in advance!!!

UDF for inlet y velocity 2D

Hi,
I have seen and used UDFs for the inlet x velocity, but what do I do to make a UDF for inlet y velocity. Here is the UDF that I used for inlet x velocity. [ #include "udf.h" #define umean 10.0 #define R 0.0005 DEFINE_PROFILE(inletxvelocity,t,i) { real x[ND_ND]; real y; face_t f; begin_f_loop(f,t) { F_CENTROID(x,f,t); y = x[1]; F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = (3./2.)*umean*(1pow((yR)/R,2)); } end_f_loop(f,t) } ] I tried replacing x with y and vice versa to hopefully get the ydirection velocity, but unsuccessful. Any suggestions here will be useful. Thanks, Keyu

y = x[1]; If you want a velocity profile normal to the Y direction, you need to use the variation of the position in the X direction if 2D and X and/or Z direction if 3D.

Dear all
I have following UDF for inlet temperature, untill 1300s it takes correct values according to equation, but after 1300s values are higher and not accorrding to equation, like at 1301s it should have value of 405C but in simulation inlet temperature is 621C. I could not find the error in my UDF after lot of try. please check this and guide me #include"udf.h" DEFINE_PROFILE(inlet_temperature,thread,position ) { face_t f; begin_f_loop(f,thread) { real t = RP_Get_Real("flowtime"); if (t <=1300.0 ) { F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 379.13 + 0.0005*t; } else if (1300.0 < t && t <= 1500.0 ) { F_PROFILE(f,thread,position)= 1.04289036878969*pow(10,10)*pow(t,6.0)+ 8.86126436853789*pow(10,7)*pow(t,5.0)3.13621260398811*pow(10,3)*pow(t,4.0)+5.91804640375908*pow(t,3.0)6.27969461279651*pow(10,3)*pow(t,2.0)+ 3.55273415252714*pow(10,6)*t  8.37223405676245*pow(10,8); } else { F_PROFILE(f,thread,position) = 9.51538261322402*pow(10,23)*pow(t,6) + 8.26192751387975*pow(10,18)*pow(t,5)2.85237398505875*pow(10,13)*pow(t,4)+4.97518353700886*pow(10,9)*pow(t,3)4.58733775886876*pow(10,5)*pow(t,2)+ 2.10251137071757*pow(10,1)*t +3.57252192344954*pow(10,2); } } end_f_loop(f,thread) }

Code:
else if (1300.0 < t && t <= 1500.0 ) Code:
else if ((1300.0 < t) && (t <= 1500.0 ))

If you use this UDF:
Code:
Message("V=Asinwt"); This is almost surely not what you want, but I can not guess what you really want. You should explain better what you want the UDF to do. Edit: let me be a little bit more helpful, after drinking coffee. If A, w and t are defined variables, and you want to put the result in V, the way to put that in a UDF is: Code:
V = A*sin(w*t);

Thank you for the answers you have given me. I want to examine the impact of heat transfer in an oscillating jet, for sinusoidal input speed jet was
u = Asinwt The A (Initial velocity), w (period), t (time) But I do not know how to code the program is written udf

Look for a UDF that does something similar, and change it.
There are UDFs mentioned in the messages above that do something similar... Read them!

Hi there,
I have tried to implement this UDF in ansys fluent however it is resulting in an error stating : " output pipe has been closed " Any ideas why this might be?

There is a syntax error in the line :
DEFINE_PROFILE(unsteady_velocity, thread, position) However this is similar to other examples I have seen. Any ideas why this may be?
