I have 200 small inlets and the inlet velocities are different (table). How can I define the inlet velocities BC by using udf to read table.

Thanks!

How are the velocities ordered within the table, could you provide an excerpt? Are they a function of radial distance from the axis? You should be able to use a DEFINE_PROFILE applied to all inlets and read values from a table.

The table is like:

Inlet No. velocity(m/s)

1 2
2 2.1
3 1.9
4 2.6
5 1.6
......

Thanks!
