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.

The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. FC files files znsys with. After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:. Enter the user routine name you wish to include.
The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: The first portion of the output is shown below:.
The specified routine must reside in the current working directory. These messages may state that object files annsys 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 user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools. Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys.
Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:. The format of the command is:. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files.
There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:. A script named findUPF.

The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list. This requirement is due to shared library usage. If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou must include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:.
Create a dynamic-link library. After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit. The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing. 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 procedure then loads all object files files ending with. The executable file s created will be named ansys.

Use the following command:. You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms.
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: Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. When you run a user-linked version of the uupf by this method, the output includes this message:. This procedure will nasys which versions you intend to relink and then will upc all Fortran files files ending with.
When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys.
To execute the relinked asnys. All Fortran files files ending with. When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set.
This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured. By default this folder is:.
