Hello,

I am trying to solve for solidification in simple binary systems with convection and Species transport. At the end I want to plot species fraction in terms of C_mix(mixture concentration) which is defined as

C_mix=fl*Cl+C_new

C_new=C_old+del_f*k*Cl

fl=Liquid fraction
Cl= Liquid concentration
del_f = Difference in liquid fraction in successive time steps.
k= Partition Coefficient
C0= Alloy Composition
C_old = acts as counter (initialized as C_old=K*C0)

I am trying to write the UDF but do not know where to hook up the UDF in species model.

Here is my UDF

#include "udf.h"

DEFINE_PROPERTY(c_mix,c,t)
{
real c_m,k=0.3,c_new,c_old=k*0.1;
begin_c_loop(c,t)
{
del_f=C_LIQF(c,t,1)-C_LIQF(c,t,0);
c_new=c_old+del_f*k*C_YI(c,t,i);
c_m=C_LIQF(c,t)*C_YI(c,t,i)+c_new ;
}
end_c_loop(c,t)
return c_m;
}
