Hi,

I have a fluent case where I would like to change the velocity inlet value to three different flow fluids. Each flow takes on average 3-4 hours to solve, therefore I would like to know if there is a way to set the flow rate to change automatically in fluent after a prescribed number of timesteps.

i.e.

1 m/s for 15 seconds
3 m/s for 25 seconds
6 m/s for 65 seconds

How can I accomplish this?

Hi parradux,
You can use some UDF for this type of BC setup.
