Now I am doing some test, and I would like to use the convective boundary condition for the outlet condition. But I donít know where I can find this boundary condition in the FLUENT software. I have to write the UDF, right? Did you ever write UDF for this boundary condition? Do you willing to send me one? Thank you!

@ Qinmin Zheng,
I think, you can do it using a DEFINE_PROFILE macro. It is easy and straightforward. You can also find a couple of examples employing this macro in UDF manual. Good luck
