Thread: Including data from other programs

    Including data from other programs

    I had a question regarding passing on array values from my CFD code to one of the PDEs solved by PDE2D. In my set of 6 simultaneous PDEs, for Equation F1, I need to pass on the temperature variable as a coefficient to one of the terms. The temperature variable is available as an array, temp(nx,ny,nz). How can I include it?

    You need to reference the temperature in F1 as "temper(x,y,z)" and then
    write a Fortran function temper which interpolates your array to the point
    (x,y,z). I have written a function which does tri-linear interpolation to
    your array, which I assume can be passed through COMMON to this
    function. If you want to read the array temp from a file, you can do this
    also (but you don't want to read the file everytime temper is called, so
    I usually have a variable "INIT" set to 0 in a data statement, then I check
    to see if INIT=0, if so, I open the file and read in the array, and set INIT=1,
    so next time the file reading will be skipped.)

    I haven't tested this function, so it may have a bug or two in it, but should
    be minor.

    function temper(x,y,z)
    implicit double precision (a-h,o-z)
    parameters (nx=?,ny=?,nz=?)
    c pass temperature array in through common
    common /block1/ temp(nx,ny,nz)
    data xa,xb,ya,yb,xa,xb/ ?? /
    hx = (xb-xa)/(nx-1)
    hy = (yb-ya)/(ny-1)
    hz = (zb-za)/(nz-1)
    c ix will be between 0 and nx-2, etc.
    ix = (x-xa)/hx - 0.001
    iy = (y-ya)/hy - 0.001
    iz = (z-za)/hz - 0.001
    rx = (x - (xa+ix*hx))/hx
    ry = (y - (ya+iy*hy))/hy
    rz = (z - (za+iz*hz))/hz
    u000 = temp(nx+1,ny+1,nz+1)
    u001 = temp(nx+1,ny+1,nz+2)
    u010 = temp(nx+1,ny+2,nz+1)
    u011 = temp(nx+1,ny+2,nz+2)
    u100 = temp(nx+2,ny+1,nz+1)
    u101 = temp(nx+2,ny+1,nz+2)
    u110 = temp(nx+2,ny+2,nz+1)
    u111 = temp(nx+2,ny+2,nz+2)
    c do tri-linear interpolation for temp at (x,y,z)
    ux00 = u000 + rx*(u100-u000)
    ux10 = u010 + rx*(u110-u010)
    uxy0 = ux00 + ry*(ux10-ux00)
    ux01 = u001 + rx*(u101-u001)
    ux11 = u011 + rx*(u111-u011)
    uxy1 = ux01 + ry*(ux11-ux01)
    uxyz = uxy0 + rz*(uxy1-uxy0)
    temper = uxyz
