Feed real BConditions (temp) into fluent
 
I am looking to simulate a mixing device inline (almost online) for temperature controll.

Ideally I would like to feed inlet temperatures (hot and cold) directly to Fluent every 10 seconds. As of now I write the Temperatures into a text file. When I start fluent and use DEFINE_PROFILE to set the BC of both inlets where the values are read from the file.

PROBLEM: How do I automatically start Fluent for 50 iterations every x seconds? Is this possible from within Fluent or do I have to find a way to make a timed dos batch run? Any ideas are appreciated
