Hi
i have tabulated data of velocity, k and e from actual experiment in .dat type. how can i set fluent to read from this file for the inlet conditions? also if i want to set k-e using the relationship e=C*k^1.5 how and where to specify that?
any help/advice or reference is highly appreciated

You should write a UDF for that. Look in the UDF manual for DEFINE_PROFILE, there are some examples that might help you further.
