Do you guys know how can we use UPF in Workbench? I download the UPF extension and I read the. Recently, I started working with UPFs. Right now I chiefly work with UPF-functions , however, I want to use UPF-subroutines soon.

Create a dynamic-link library. The executable file s created will be named ansys. If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou need to include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:. By default this folder is:.

The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list. The first portion of the output is shown below:. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms.

If you ansye running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou must include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:.

Before using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:. The format of the command is:. When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys.

After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:. When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:. These messages may state that object files have been created, but the Mechanical APDL executable has not been created; or the errors may state that some libraries necessary to complete the link cannot be found.


The following user routines can be linked using this method:. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files.

Get UPF return value from Mechanical APDL input file

Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. The specified routine must reside in the current working directory. Enter the user routine name you wish to jpf. This requirement is due to shared library usage. This procedure will ask which versions you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with.

Use the following command:. You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured.

A script named findUPF. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing. Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys.

Compiling and Linking UPFs on Windows Systems

FC files files ending with. Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems.


When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only anwys you puf a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools.

You will need all the compilers specified in the Installation Guide specific to your asnys system to use these user programmable features. There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:. The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line.

All Fortran files files ending with. The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit.

The procedure then loads all object files files ending with.

UPF: Chapter 1: Using User Programmable Features (UPFs) (UP)

In this command prompt window, issue the drive letter and all the necessary cd commands to move to the directory where the customized files exist example: To execute the relinked ansys. If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in.

These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set.
