Dear all,
I am simulating the laminar flow through a pipe having one(1) inlet and ten(10) outlets. As a boundary condition I am prescribing the inlet velocity for the inlet plane. For the outlets, I know the value of outflow discharges as a percentage of the inlet flow like

Inlet:100% outlet1: 20%
outlet2:5%
outlet3:10%
outlet4:5%
outlet5:11%
.....
But, how to put this boundary condition in Fluent.

Hi, choose outflow boundary condition for all your outlets:

NB: these are percentages of mass flow.
