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.

Ansya following user routines can be linked using this method:. Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys.
You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable.
The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: 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: Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:. To execute the relinked ansys. All Fortran files files ending with.
FC files files ending with. anssys
These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set. Use the following command:. The executable file s created will be named ansys. When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms.
By default this folder is:. This requirement is due to shared library usage. You will need all the compilers specified in the Installation Guide specific to your operating system to use these user programmable features. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files.
The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing.

The first portion of the output is shown below:. After you have selected all desired user routines, asys Enter to quit. The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list.
When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys. Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems. 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:.
This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured. Create a dynamic-link library.

The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line. This procedure will ask which annsys you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with. 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:.
If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other upd Fortran.
The specified routine anss reside in the current working directory. When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:. The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools. Enter the user routine name you wish to include.
Get UPF return value from Mechanical APDL input file
A script named findUPF. The procedure then loads all object files files ending with. The format of the command is:.
After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: 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 qnsys necessary to complete the link cannot be found.
There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:. Before using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:.
