Default Need help on mass source at wall boundary!
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I need help on the above and had written a UDF to describe mass source and sink at wall boundary between 2 adjacent flow channels. In short, I would like to simulate one specie from the feed flow channel to pass through a wall(membrane), which i simulate by having the cells adjacent to the wall to have a mass sink. While on the permeate side I would like to simulate that this same specie permeats through the wall at the adjacent cells to the wall to act like a mass source.

I had written a UDF using Define_source and attached it below. Can someone help me comment on it as it doesnt seem to work when I add it into the simulation? Thanks alot.

# include "udf.h"

DEFINE_SOURCE(membrane_flux,c,t,ds,eqn) { face_t f; Thread *tf, *tfs, *t0, *t1; cell_t c0, c1; real osmotic_P1, osmotic_P2, mem_flux, source=0; int n;

c_face_loop(c,t,n) { f=C_FACE(c,t,n); tf=C_FACE_THREAD(c,t,n); if(BOUNDARY_FACE_THREAD_P(tf)) /* must be thread face */ {

if(!NULLP(tfs=THREAD_SHADOW(tf))) /* thread face too */






Source = /* This is for calculations to return the source/sink term */




} } else { } } return source; }
