UDF problem!
Hi, I simulate gassolid twophase flow using discrete phase model. I want to simulate a body force on particles using UDF. But in the force expression, there are varibles about gas phase such as gas velocity, gas density. My C code using UDF is as following:
#include "udf.h" #include "dpm.h" DEFINE_DPM_BODY_FORCE(forcerot, p, i) { float forcerot; forcerot=C_R(c,t)/P_RHO(p)*x[0]*C_V(c,t); return(forcerot); } where P_RHO(p) (particle density) can obtain, but C_R(c,t) (gas density)£¬x[0] (x component of location)£¬ C_V(c,t) (y component of gas velocity) are unknown. How can I get the values of these variables? Thanks for any help in advance! Regards, ann 
Re: UDF problem!
I have the same problem, too. I tried to write a UDF of the drag force, taking into account the slip correction factor which is a function of local Pressure and Temperature. And I could not obtain the pressure values for the current particle position. For your problem, I guess you can assume the gas temperature to be equal to the particle temperature, and you can obtain the particle temperature using the Macro P_T(p).
