 April 5, 2004, 13:08 Wall temp UDF #1 sud Guest   Posts: n/a Dear Frnds, I am relatively new user to FLUENT .I have two queries, 1. I want to access wall tempearture from FLUENT and that I have to use in my UDF(interpreted) which is return as follows, but it is giving an error as Error: all-new.c: line 9269: face: undeclared variable I hve been trying it for a long time but I couldn't solve it. So what is wrong in the UDF Is syntax for wall temperature is wrong? #include "udf.h" DEFINE_PROFILE(hvar_comb,thread,position) { face_t f; real x[ND_ND]; real temp=F_T(face,thread); real to,m,p,q,taw,h,murf,rhorf,trf,st,rerf,v,rho,ht,hr; real gamma=1.4,r=0.878,Pr=0.68; real tw=300,C=1006,R=287; begin_f_loop(f, thread) { F_CENTROID(x,f,thread); t = 69.224*(pow(x[0],2)) + 441.47*x[0] + 684.92; if(x[0]>=1.15 && x[0] < 1.509) { m = -0.8668*x[0] + 2.9991; } if(x[0]>=1.509 && x[0]<= 3.0) { m= -0.1631*(pow(x[0],4)) + 1.6039*(pow(x[0],3)) - 5.9183*(pow(x[0],2)) + 9.5667*x[0] - 3.9286; } if(x[0]>=1.15 && x[0]<1.5224) { p = 51394*x[0] + 1818.1; } if (x[0]>=1.5224 && x[0]<=3.0) { p = -25791*(pow(x[0],3)) + 198961*(pow(x[0],2)) - 519832*x[0]+ 499456; } rho=p/(R*t); v=m*(sqrt(gamma*R*t)); to=t*(1+0.2*(pow(m,2))); taw=t+r*(to-t); trf=t+0.5*(tw-t)+0.22*(taw-t); murf = -1E-11*pow(trf,2) + 5E-08*trf + 6E-06; rhorf=p/(R*trf); rerf=rhorf*v*x[0]/murf; st=0.0296 *(pow(rerf,(-0.2)))/(pow(Pr,0.6667)); h=st*rho*C*v; hr=((0.9*5.67e-8*((pow(temp,4))-(pow(237,4)))/(1843-temp); ht=h-hr; F_PROFILE(f,thread,position)=ht; } end_f_loop(f, thread) } Second problem I facing in variable properties . 2. I need to give variable thermal conductivity in material properties(which is polynomial eaquation k = 1E-06x2 + 0.0158x + 11.421.) I am selecting polynomial option in the fluent giving three coefficients as 1e-06,0.0158 and 11.421. so is it correct? results I am getting are absurd. So could u please extend help regarding these queries? Sorry for troubling u,but I hope u will not mind it. thanks and regards.

 April 11, 2004, 02:56 Define_adjust #4 sud Guest   Posts: n/a Hi friends, thanks a lot ajay & FJ for ur valuable suggestions. have second problem now. I need to control the coolant flow through a channel with reference to flow time. For e.g. for first 40 sec of computatation i don't want to allow the coolant to pass through for next 40 sec(ie 40 to 80 sec)I want aloow the coolant to pass through. again for next 150 sec i don't want to allow the coolant to pass through a channel. This I know that I have do by using DEFINE_on_demand or DEfine_adjust. But I don't know how to do it and where to implement this UDF (tht means at velocity inlet bondary condition or somewhere else) Could anybody help me out regarding this problem. Thanks in advance

 April 11, 2004, 22:17 Re: Define_adjust #5 FJ Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Do you want to switching your BC as a time function,don't you?. If it is, DEFINE_PROFILE is suitable. Other macros make you bother. I'll explain below. DEFINE_ON_DEMAND is called when you want to do(I mean , writing a file or reading a file, calculate a certain value). So I think this macro makes no sense in this problem. DEFINE_ADJUST is called at every iteration. If calculation is steady flow, it's O.K. But if it's unsteady flow ,this thing is sometimes bothering us and DEFINE_ADJUST should not be used. Since DEFINE_ADJUST is called at every iteration(it's not the end of time step), when we defined some equations in this macro ,returned values are calculated from un-convergence results. This thing is unphysical and makes calculation divergence . So DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END should be used. This macro is called at the end of each time step and can return values but is not able to set a value for BC. So we have to use both DEFINE_EXECUTE_AT_END and DEFINE_PROFILE. It's bother but we are able to do everything via UDF . Thank you. FJ
