Default Cell surface
Posts: n/a

I am at present writing a UDF. I know if I want to get the cell volume i have to write C_VOLUME(c,t) but there is no definition on how to get the cell area.

Does anyone know how to handle this?

thank you very much for your time

You can try taking the sum of all face area's (command F_AREA(A,f,tf)) within a cell. You can do this in a loop over all faces in the cell.
