In order to include uds properly

    • Austin_p

      I 'm trying to use UDS which is written in the ansys fluent guide 2.7.3

      /*    UDF that implements a simplified advective term in the          */
      /*    scalar transport equation                                       */
      #include "udf.h"
        cell_t  c0,  c1 = -1;
        Thread *t0, *t1 = NULL;
        real NV_VEC(psi_vec), NV_VEC(A), flux = 0.0;
        c0 = F_C0(f,t);
        t0 = F_C0_THREAD(f,t);
        F_AREA(A, f, t);
        /* If face lies at domain boundary, use face values; */
        /* If face lies IN the domain, use average of adjacent cells. */
       if (BOUNDARY_FACE_THREAD_P(t)) /*Most face values will be available*/
            real dens;
            /* Depending on its BC, density may not be set on face thread*/
              dens = F_R(f,t);   /* Set dens to face value if available */
              dens = C_R(c0,t0); /* else, set dens to cell value */
            NV_DS(psi_vec,  =, F_U(f,t), F_V(f,t), F_W(f,t), *, dens);
            flux = NV_DOT(psi_vec, A); /* flux through Face */
            c1 = F_C1(f,t);       /* Get cell on other side of face */
            t1 = F_C1_THREAD(f,t); 
            NV_DS(psi_vec,  =, C_U(c0,t0),C_V(c0,t0),C_W(c0,t0),*,C_R(c0,t0));
            NV_DS(psi_vec, +=, C_U(c1,t1),C_V(c1,t1),C_W(c1,t1),*,C_R(c1,t1));
            flux = NV_DOT(psi_vec, A)/2.0; /* Average flux through face */
        /* ANSYS FLUENT will multiply the returned value by phi_f (the scalar's
           value at the face) to get the "complete'' advective term.  */
        return flux;

      However, I cannot get the result of UDS as you can see in following residual graph.

      First of all you do not require UDF to be able to run with UDS. So please do not use the UDF and run again: moreover it seems that you are missing the UDS residula: so pretty sure it shows zero values in the Console residuals: so check its inflow/outflow/wall BC settings.
