Default UDF for changing viscosity
Posts: n/a
hello i want to increase 100 times the viscosity in a pipe, but just in a region of a circular pipe ( for avoiding turbulence problems)that it is to mean to maintain the viscosity in the first meter of the pipe and increase it in the rest is it possible? how can i do that? i assume that it is with an UDF... Thanks very much

Yes, you have write a UDF for that by using the DEFINE_PROPERTY macros wherein you can indicate that the velocity changes with position.

Hope it helps Shanti

Hi this is my UDF

#include "udf.h"

cell_t c;
real x[ND_ND];
real mu_lam;
real y;
Thread *t;
y= x[1];
mu_lam= 0.001002*(2-(y/0.01));
printf("MU= %f \n",mu_lam);
return mu_lam;


MY Problem is i get the value of mu at only same y i need to define value of mu at different y coordinates ..... can someone help me rectify this out??
