Default Error in UDF for slip boundary

I have written a UDF for providing slip conditions to the airfoil wall using the Navier slip equation. After compiling the code, when I initialize the solution, I get this error: received a fatal signal (Segmentation fault).
I am simulating in series and the simulation is running perfectly for no-slip condition (without UDF).
Thanks in advance.

The UDF is as follows:
#include "udf.h"
#define del 0.0004 // wall slip layer thickness [m]

cell_t c;
real x[ND_ND], gamma, c_t, c_x, u, v;
face_t f;

u = C_U(f,t);
v = C_V(f,t);
gamma = C_STRAIN_RATE_MAG(f,t); // tangential velocity component
c_t = gamma*del;
c_x = c_t*u/sqrt(u*u+v*v); // taking x component
F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = c_x;

cell_t c;
real x[ND_ND], gamma, c_t, c_y, u, v;
face_t f;

u = C_U(f,t);
v = C_V(f,t);
gamma = C_STRAIN_RATE_MAG(f,t);
c_t = gamma*del;
c_y = c_t*v/sqrt(u*u+v*v);
F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = c_y;

There are a few issues with the code. Any macro starting with C_ is meant for cell center. And it requires cell index and cell thread, i.e., the arguments of C_ macros have to be of type cell_t and Thread *t where t belongs to a cell zone and not a boundary zone. You have to define a thread variable outside the loop, i.e.,

Thread *tc;
tc = THREAD_T0(t);

and incorporate following changes within the loop

c = F_C0(f, t);

Furthermore, you don't need the command F_CENTROID as well as its corresponding variable x because these are not required by the equation.

Last comment is about its applicability. It is not recommended to apply the velocity for a slip or partial slip condition. Better approach is to determine shear stress due to this slip and then apply that.

PM to be used if and only if you do not want something to be shared publicly. PM is considered to be of the least priority.
