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.

A script named findUPF. By default this folder is:.
UPF in workbench
FC files files ending with. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: Create a dynamic-link library. 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:.
You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. These errors usually indicate that required compiler environment variables are not set. Before using any of the methods described below for linking UPFs, open the following Command Prompt window if you have Visual Studio Professional installed:. Enter the user routine name you wish to include. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms.
The specified routine must reside in the current working directory. 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:.
Compiling and Linking UPFs on Windows Systems
The following user routines can be linked using this method:. To execute the relinked ansys. The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing. The format of the command is:.
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 procedure then loads all object files files ending with. Windows Installation Guide lists the compilers that are required for Windows systems. Select other desired options then pick Run qnsys execute the customized ansys.
The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools.
The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list.
After relinking the ANSYS executable, the program can be executed wnsys either of the following two methods:. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:. The first portion of the output is shown below:. The executable file s created will be named ansys.
If you are running in a distributed memory parallel environment Distributed ANSYSyou must include the name upg the master node when specifying the working directory:.
Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran. After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit. This is a simple, automated test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured.
There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:.
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.
When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys. Use the following command:. The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line. When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. All Fortran files files ending with. In this command prompt window, issue the ansyx letter and all the necessary cd commands to anss to the directory where the customized files exist example:
