 January 22, 2009, 02:13 UDF velocity profile at nodes #1 Emad Guest   Posts: n/a Dear All How apply the fuction for velocity profile in nodes not face_t or centroed for face. I need aply this fuction at nodes. can any one to help me many thanks emad

There is an example of Looping over Nodes of a Face (f_node_loop) (also Cell separately) in the UDF Manual: face_t f; Thread *t; int n; Node *node; f_node_loop(f,t,n) { . . . node = F_NODE(f,t,n); . . . } Also NODE_X(node) returns the x co-ordinate of the node pointed to by *node. (similar macros for y and z) so the position can be found. Afraid I can't see how to change any of the node values let alone the 'i'th property. Hope this was some help. Kris

My UDF for velocity profile as:- //--------------------------------------------------------------------------- #include "udf.h" //u=Uave*(3/2)*(1-(y-h/2)/h/2)**2) //taking h=1 and Uave=0.2 m/s DEFINE_PROFILE(vel2d_inlet_velocity,t,i) { real x[ND_ND]; real rady; real py; //real z,y; face_t f; Node *v; int n; begin_f_loop(f,t) { f_node_loop(f,t,n) { v = F_NODE(f,t,n); py=(NODE_Y(v)-0.5)/0.5; rady = (1.0-pow(py,2)); F_PROFILE(f,t,i) = 0.2*(3.0/2.0)*rady; } } end_f_loop(f,t) } Many thanks agains for help me emad
