Hi, Is possible to use a outlet of a first simulation like inlet in other simulation ? I have a big model and I want to split in many models. Thank you!

Re: Inlet
Hi Christian Cordeiro No it is not possible to use the oulet of first domain to be used as inlet boundary condition for second domain, because at the oulet of first domain you specify flow conditions yourself and they do not represent the true flow scenario there. Instead of the this you have to extend first domain downstream of the true outlet and apply appropiate oulet boundary conditions to the extended domain. Then create a plane at your required outlet position and capture profiles of different variables at that plane. Now use these profiles as inlet boundary condition for second domain flow simulation.

Re: Inlet
I think u can use it if u apply the B.c at out let such as which prevail at the inlet of the second domain

Re: Inlet
Thank you.

How can I apply this ?
