June 19, 2022 at 12:12 pmjscsghSubscriberHiya,
I am modelling a transient case with two phases, and I would like to know the temperature development of the nodes in a certain thread. I used udf to export the coordinates of the wanted nodes successfully. However, I had some problems when I tried to export the temperature. I defined the field variable name using the following lines:
char *what = "temperature";
And I tried to obtain the temperature value using NODE_VALUE(v). But it reports as follows when I tried to print the temperature value.
Error: floating point exception
Error Object: #f
The fl process could not be started.
What is the possible reason which would cause this?
Is it possible that the field variable name that I am using is not right, since it is a multiphase case. How can I know the list of field variable names that I can use in the function Node_Function_Values(d, what); for a multiphase case.
Many thanks for your time and wish to hear from you soon.

Which multiphase model? Some use a phase domain, some calculate temperature at the mixture level.

Hi Robert, many thanks for your reply, and appologies that I didn't respond to your answer asap (in the old forum, once I received a reply, I will receive an email...it seems that this feature is not available in the new forum).
Regarding the export options, I will check that. But the idea is that I am planning to export the node temperature in a certain thread with specific sequencing every time step. That's the reason why I would like to use UDF to export, but it seems that the function Node_Function_Values(d,temperature) is not working for a multiphase model.
In terms of the multiphase model, I am using VOF model and I would like to export the mixture temperature of the node each timestep.
Again many thanks for your time, and if you have some idea on how to use Node_Function_Values(d,temperature) in a multiphase case, please do let me now. Cheers!

ASCII Export should make the job.

Dear Amine, many thanks for your reply. I have tried ASCII Export, but the result is that the node coordinate is listed in a random order. I am planning to export them in a required sequence and in a certain thread. That's the reason why I am using UDF. Do you know how I can use Node_Function_Values(d,temperature) in a VOF multiphase case. Many Thanks again！

No worries, IT are still hunting gremlins, once they're all caught I think we'll have emails etc.
Strictly Fluent uses cell values, so have a look at C_T(c,t)
