Random function UDF for boundary condition
Hi,
Does anyone know what to write in the UDF if I would like to generate a randomly varying pressure input? Is the command rand() or something? Thanks in advance 
Re: Random function UDF for boundary condition
Actually, I want to do this because I would like to obtain a frequency response of a probe that I am modeling...
I figured that if I subject the system to a random input, and generate some output files, I can process the data in MATLAB or something to plot the frequency response curve... I hope this bit of background information helps whoever's able to give me advice! Gracias!

Hi Chris
I have not used a random function in a UDF, however, you must be careful rand() function in C provides a uniform random number betweem 0 to RAND_MAX=32767 (always integer). Therefore I you want to generate a random number between 0 to 1 you have to divide the rand()/RAND_MAX. Don't know forget to feed somehow a seed generator for the random number srand() In addition if you want to generate a normal distribution function a "bell" shape, you must to use another function, which potentially you could download.

Thanks Alex. Where could I get the "potential" download? :)

My friend
type on google "random number generation in C" or something related to the type of distributio that you need gauss, binomial, poisson etc. Regards Alex
