Hi, I have tried to create a user code in star ccm+. I did a simple example given in the user guide of star ccm+ version 10.04.009 (window os), but it is not successful. I used visual studio 2013 as recommended in the user guide to compile source files (including uclib.h, uclib.c and zeroGradT.c).

First I compile uclib.c to create uclib.obj, then link this uclib.obj to UserFunctions.lib of star ccm+ to generate libuser.dll

There is no problem with the first step, but the second step is always wrong. The error is:
"ublib.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol zeroGradT referencetion uclib
libuser.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals"

I checked the define of zeroGradT function, but it seems to be okey. Could anyone help me find the solution for this problem? Thanks!


#ifndef UCLIB_H
#define UCLIB_H
typedef double Real;
typedef float Real;
typedef double CoordReal;

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#if defined(WIN32) || defined(_WINDOWS) || defined(_WINNT)
# define USERFUNCTION_EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)
# define USERFUNCTION_IMPORT __declspec(dllimport)

extern void USERFUNCTION_IMPORT ucarg(void *, char *, char *, int);
extern void USERFUNCTION_IMPORT ucfunc(void *, char *, char *);
extern void USERFUNCTION_IMPORT ucfunction(void *, char *, char *, int, ...);

#ifdef __cplusplus



#include "uclib.h"

void zeroGradT(Real*, int, int*, Real*);

ucfunc(zeroGradT, "BoundaryProfile", "Zero Gradient Temperature");
ucarg (zeroGradT, "Face", "FaceCellIndex", sizeof(int[2]));
ucarg (zeroGradT, "Cell", "Temperature", sizeof(Real));


#include "uclib.h"

void USERFUNCTION_EXPORT zeroGradT(Real *result, int size, int (*fc)[2], Real *T)
int i;
for (i = 0; i != size; ++i)
result[i] = T[fc[i][0]];

Hi..I am new to Star-ccm+ community. Can you please explain the procedure to use a user code? Do I need to compile the user code in C and attach to the sim file? How can I use this newly added user code with the simulation?? To my understanding, it is absolutely different from using a field function. Please help. Thanks.
