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.

This is a simple, qnsys test that verifies whether compilers are correctly installed and configured. Visual Studio Professional Update 4 is also required for linking user programmable features on Windows platforms. A script named findUPF. When you run a user-linked version of the program by this method, the output includes this message:.
The user routines that are supported by this method will appear in a list. Note that when using a combination of languages, you are responsible for the calling interfaces between languages see Programming in Languages Other than Fortran.

To execute the relinked ansys. The routines that have been linked will be included in the output listing. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement:. 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:.
Create a dynamic-link library. The -custom option must be the last option at the end of the command line. The first portion of the output is shown below:. When the job is complete, run the following commands from a Command Prompt window:. The format of the command is:.
If you modify any of the user routines, move them to the folder s they are linking in. 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.
After relinking annsys ANSYS executable, the program can be executed by either of the following two methods:. This requirement is due to shared library usage. The specified routine must reside in the current working directory. By default this folder is:. The executable file s created will 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:.
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 procedure then loads all object files files ending with. If the test worked correctly, this should display many lines of debug from all output files. The source files for the user routines reside in the following subdirectory: FNasys files files ending with. After you have selected all desired user routines, press Enter to quit.
The user programmable features are loaded onto the system only if you perform a custom installation and choose to install the customization tools. Output from a user-linked version contains the following statement: Select other desired options then pick Run to execute the customized ansys.
The following user routines can be linked using this method:. When creating custom executables, they must be named ansys. Use the following command:. All Fortran files files ending with.
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: You must include the path to this script in your system PATH variable. Enter the user routine name you wish to include. This procedure will ask which versions you intend to relink and then will compile all Fortran files files ending with.
There are three methods that you can use to link your custom routines into the Mechanical APDL program:.
