chenkaiqe is on a distinguished road
I have a UDF as,
#include "udf.h"
#include "mem.h"
DEFINE_PROPERTY(viscosity3, c, t)

real tt,time;
real Z;
real strain_rate_nu;
real yield_stress;
real vis;


yield_stress = 188.68*log(pow(Z/6.26,1.0/5.06)+pow(pow(Z/6.26,2.0/5.06)+1.0,0.5));
return vis;

but every time when I try to use this, the fluent received a fatal signal (Segmentation fault). shows, even when I try to run it without UDF and then put it back, the errors shows up, someone can help me ~~~~~~

The only reason I can think of is that you have not activated the energy equation. Because of that the simulation can not access the temperature data via C_T(c,t).

If I try a temperature of 300 Kelvin, then exp(196835.0/8.314/tt) is equal to 1.8e34. This number may be too big to hold, if you are running single precision.

If this equation is really what you want, then you might use some numerical tricks to make it numerically better:
