hi everybody
i wrote this udf to read out data from a .txt file but the data written in x,y and z are wrong, almost nothing is written

#include "udf.h"
DEFINE_GRID_MOTION(grid_motion,domain,dt,time,dtim e)
int j;
int i;
int n;
FILE *fd;
float x[249];
float y[249];
float z[249];
face_t f;
Thread *thread = DT_THREAD(dt);
Node *v;
fd = fopen("f2d22.txt", "r");

for (j=0; j<250; j++)

fscanf(fd,"%e,%e,%e\n", &x[j] ,&y[j], &z[j]);


/* printf("%e,%e,%e\n", x[1] ,y[1], z[1]); */

i = 0;

begin_f_loop (f, thread)


f_node_loop (f, thread, n)


v = F_NODE (f, thread, n);

i = i+1;

NODE_X(v) = x[i];

NODE_Y(v) = y[i];

NODE_Z(v) = z[i];



end_f_loop (f, thread)

Dear f.yn,

I would like to know if you have solved your problem and if you could give me some hints on how to solve it. I am facing a similar problem and in my case I want that the udf read the node positions exported from ansys APDL.

best regards!
