Problem of defining inlet and outlet boundary conditions from files
 
Hi everyone, I am simulating natural ventilation system in a cattle farm. I would like to do it in this way. I will simulate the surroundings first (atmophere area cutting the cattle farm out), then I will export the simulation data at the connect surface between atmosphere and cattle farm. Secondly, I will simulate the cattle farm. I would like to define the inlet and outlet boundary conditions by reading the data at the connect surface, which I export from former simulations for the atmosphere. But I don't know if it is possible.

If it is possible, then (1) which format I should export? (2) how to read into the second simulation to define the inlet and outlet boundary conditions? Thank you.

you can use profiles.
