ANSYS User-Defined Functions in ANSYS Fluent
A technical education and background is required, but an engineering degree is not necessary.
Completion of the Introduction to ANSYS Fluent course is required.
Experience running ANSYS Fluent and some prior experience with a programming language, preferably a C-based language is essential. The introduction to C itself is very firm during this course. The focus is on the usage of Fluent macros embedded in a C program. UDFs are written in C90.
For the workshops a supported C compiler is required. A text editor with user-defined syntax highlighting is recommended but not required.
The ANSYS Fluent UDF training will provide you with the skills to make use of the most powerful interface available in ANSYS Fluent.
In this course you will learn the basic structure of user-defined functions (UDF). You will get an overview about the documented macros to access solver variables and to hook your UDF to most models that are available in ANSYS Fluent to describe better boundary conditions, enhance the existing models to better suit your needs or even create your own models that are not available for your competitors.
