See the UDF-Tutorials or the examples in the UDF-Handbook. They provide a UDF with a sinus-based time dependent inlet-function: ************************************************** ********************/ /* unsteady.c */ /* UDF for specifying a transient velocity profile boundary condition */ /************************************************** ********************/ #include "udf.h" DEFINE_PROFILE(unsteady_velocity, thread, position) { face_t f; begin_f_loop(f, thread) { real t = RP_Get_Real("flow-time"); F_PROFILE(f, thread, position) = 20. + 5.0*sin(10.*t); } end_f_loop(f, thread) } Volker

This file was set for the inlet velocity to change as time like sinusoidal wave. For more detailed, refer the manual and handbook or contact the Fluent inc.
