UDF variables F1, y / problem with UDF

Hello,
as I said a couple days ago, I just started programming UDFs for FLUENT. Therefore I'm looking for variables:  for the SSTkomegamodel: # blending function: F1 # the distance to the next surface: y My second problem is still the one with the temperaturegradient. Here is my little UDF: /************************************************** ******************/ /* UDF */ /************************************************** ******************/ #include "udf.h" DEFINE_ADJUST(my_adjust, d) { real dT_dz, dT_dy, dT_dx; real dp_dz; Thread *t; cell_t c; thread_loop_c (t,d) { begin_c_loop (c,t) //dT_dz = C_T_G(c,t)[2]; dT_dy = C_T_G(c,t)[1]; //dT_dx = C_T_G(c,t)[0]; dp_dz= C_DP(c,t)[2]; end_c_loop (c,t) } } I interpret the UDF in FLUENT and set the fuction hook for Adjust with no problems, but when I start calculating, FLUENT gives me this: ' FLUENT received fatal signal (ACCESS_VIOLATION) ' Does anybody can help me?

You're trying to access to gradients at the first iteration, but they're not defined yet. Try putting all your commands which try to access to gradients in an if like this:
if (Data_Valid_P()) { ... } For example: DEFINE_ADJUST(my_adjust, d) { real dT_dz, dT_dy, dT_dx; real dp_dz; Thread *t; cell_t c; thread_loop_c (t,d) { begin_c_loop (c,t) { if (Data_Valid_P()) { //dT_dz = C_T_G(c,t)[2]; dT_dy = C_T_G(c,t)[1]; //dT_dx = C_T_G(c,t)[0]; dp_dz= C_DP(c,t)[2]; } } end_c_loop (c,t) } }

Thanks a lot! The 'if (Data_Valid_P())' didn't work, but I put a countvariable in, so the calculation starts with the next step. But how come that I can get access to the Pressure Gradient a the first step?

The countvariable just helped, because the calculation in my UDF didn't start. To get the 'if(Data_Valid_P())' work, do I have to adjust any settings?

You don't have the gradient defined at the first iteration because the gradient is calculated using data obtained from two consecutive iterations.
You don't have to adjust anything to use Data_Valid_P(). Data_Valid_P() is generally used to do a check like: if (!Data_Valid_P()) return 0; followed by the commands which contain gradients. If I'm not wrong, there is an example of it's use in the UDF manual, among the examples about UDS, in the example of the implementation of the P1 model.

Hi Fabian
I think your problem is that FLUENT does not keep the gradients in memory after having solved the respective equation for that variable. Try the text command : solve/set/expert  keep temporary memory from beind freed? yes. br Markus

Hi, now it works (sovlve/set/expert and Data_Valid())! I didn't keep the data in memory.
