 October 18, 2000, 12:21 How to get nodes coordinates for a certain cell ? #1 mikhail Guest   Posts: n/a Hi ! While looping over cells in a thread I need to define coordinates of all cell nodes to provide the next calculations. Wouldn't you give me some information about this matter ? I suspect that the functions I need are NODE_X(node), NODE_Y(node), NODE_Z(node), but how can I define this "node" parameter ? Best wishes. Mikhail

At the moment, I am using the follow expression: xc1 = NODE_X(C_NODE(cell, thread, n)); n is the number of node (0 - 4) for quadri cells! This expression run well when insert in the main loop of the FLUENT code. But I am not getting to do a loop over the cells nodes in the domain. I contacted the Technical support by FLUENT for to resolve this... We can to change more informations...
