UDF and window console termination error/problem

    • hbilal1076

      Dear Concern,

      In Ansys Fluent, when I compile and load the UDF file, and also in the Cell zone conditions>Fluid I added/enabled the source term and uploaded the UDF file and even initialize but when I click on calculate, after 5 second the console window get terminated/crashed/disappeared.

      Before getting crashed I see this below error

      999999: mpt_accept: error: accept failed: no such file or directory

      999999: mpt_accept: error: accept failed: no such file or directory

      999999: mpt_accept: error: accept failed: no such file or directory

      I tried the other UDF sample model from fluent manual and it work well and get calculated.

      Kindly explain the possible mistake or the modification that I need to do in my attached UDF.

      I'm not sure why you're using the IF(c==400) lines, otherwise I'm not checking the rest of the code.
    • Karthik R
      To add to Rob's thought, please use 'fprintf' or 'message' statements to make sure that your code is running as intended. This would be the best way to identify the root cause of this issue and debug it. You should be able to find the syntax for these commands in the Fluent customization manual.

      Dear Prof. Rob and Kremella Thank you very much for your reply.
      The error process is changes now, when I load UDF and click on built it worked and in console "done building targets" appear, but when I click on compile, in the console the following error occurred.

      ===============Message from the Cortex Process================================
      Compute processes interrupted. Processing can be resumed.
      Error: Error code: 126\n

      For your convenience I attached the screenshot.
      Please help. TIA

      Assuming you've added enough UDS space I'm not sure. Compile/Build will flag if the code is grammatically correct. Load just makes it available to the solver; you then need to hook up the terms. If it's then failing it's something you've written. Rather than using the source term, can you put the output into a UDM and return a fixed value to test the code?
