HELP! function airfoil has wrong type: 29 != 43
Hi,
I'm trying to run a simulation of a flapping 2d airfoil in fluent. So far I'm having big problems. I made an unstructured mesh and loaded my UDF into Fluent, but after I set up all my parameters and click on iterate it gives me the following error: Error: get_udf_function: function airfoil has wrong type: 29 != 43 Error Object: () Can anyone help me please?! I need this for my thesis and I can't get it to work! Thank you in advance Alex 
Re: HELP! function airfoil has wrong type: 29 != 4
Error message is clear, there is a variable type definition error, you have to go through your function line by line and see what is wrong or you print a copy on the forum

Hi,
The code follows. It tries to describe the motion in pitch and plunge of an airfoil. Can anyone please tell me if they see a mistake? Also, I'm not too sure if I defined the pressure force on the body properly. I just copied that from the DEFINE_CG_MOTION example in the tutorial. Thanks for the help Alex PS. If you would like a prettier version (ie. in .txt) please write me an email.
