I have a laminar species transport simulation with volumetric reactions taking place. At the end of the simulation I need to export a decent list (30+ items) of solution parameters to a file for additional post-processing outside FLUENT.
I have a compiled UDF that can be run on demand to export standard solution parameters (vel, temp, mass frac, etc.) to a text file. I want to also export other model-specific parameters (net reaction rate, species concentration, etc.) which are available using the standard GUI to export solution data, but I cannot figure out how to call these parameters into the UDF.
Is there a way to call other species/reaction parameters into a UDF and save them? Or am I stuck using the GUI to select these additional items for export?March 23, 2022 at 1:26 pmKarthik RAdministratorHello:
The fastest way to move forward with your work, in my opinion, would be to set this up in the GUI and use a journal file to export the variables of interest. You can run this journal file whenever you wish to export these variables.
