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.

Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems. You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable.

Get UPF return value from Mechanical APDL input file

The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: The first portion of the output is shown below:. The procedure then loads all object files files ending with. All Fortran files files ending with. Use the following command:.

When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys. Andys using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:. The -custom option must be the last option ansjs the end of the command line. The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools.

Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. A script named findUPF.


Compiling and Linking UPFs on Windows Systems

After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit. After relinking the ANSYS executable, the ulf can be executed by either of the following two methods:. This requirement is due to shared library usage. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: 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:.

The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list. The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing.

Create a dynamic-link library. The format of the command is:.

Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms. By default this folder is:. Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys.

FC files files ending with. The executable file ulf created will be named ansys. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files. When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:. These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set.

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: There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:. Enter the user routine name you wish to include.


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

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 specified routine must reside in the current working directory.

The following user routines can be linked using this method:. This procedure will ask which versions you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with.

Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:.

If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. You will need all the compilers specified in the Installation Guide specific to your operating system to use these user programmable features. This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured.

To execute the relinked ansys.

If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYS aneys, you must include the name of the master node when specifying the working directory:. When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:.
