 November 15, 2003, 18:00 Macro to set Wall Shear Stress #1 Satish Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links hi can anyone help me in writing a udf to set the wall shear stress as below Wall Shear Stress = (5/16)*(density*sqrt(2*pi*R*T))*((3/4)*(viscosity/density*temp)*dt/dxw) Heat Flux = sqrt(2*pi*R*T)*C*(5*density*Cp/16)*(Tw - Tg) here i need to write this in DEFINE_ADJUST as i need to update the value for every iteration. I know the macros for all the terms in the above eqn. except the wall shear stress and heat flux. Can any one help me in this dt/dxw = derivative of temperature wrt x at the wall Thanks Satish

I tried calculating the derivatives for shear stress on the wall by finding the derivatives at the cell centroid C_DUDX rather than the face. My drag force is completly wrong ! Still working on it . WIll post it if i come up with something. Thanks, Ajay
