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.

These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms.
The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: 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.
Enter the user routine name you wish to include. The following user routines can be linked using this method:.
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:. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:.
Compiling and Linking UPFs on Windows Systems
After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit. When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:. All Fortran files files ending with. The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list.
Get UPF return value from Mechanical APDL input file
Before using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:. Use the following command:. A script named findUPF. There are annsys 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.
FC files files ending with.
UPF in workbench
The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools. You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. Create a dynamic-link library. This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers aneys correctly installed and configured. The first portion of the output is shown below:.
Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys. The routines that have been linked will be asys in the output listing.
UPF: Chapter 1: Using User Programmable Features (UPFs) (UP)
You will need all the compilers specified in the Installation Guide specific to your operating system to use these user programmable features. Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. If the test worked correctly, this should display upv lines of debug from all output files.
The procedure then loads all object files files ending with. The format of the command is:.
If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. This requirement is due to shared library usage. To execute the relinked ansys. After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:.
The executable file s created will be named ansys. 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:. By default this folder is:.
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: Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems. When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys. This procedure will ask which versions you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with.
When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. The specified routine must reside in the current working directory.
