Dear guys:

In my problem, I was trying to input a variable velocity inlet instead of a constant velocity through out. How is this done??

Thanks in advance

Velocity varying with time or with position?

Varying with time, I think your only option is UDF (or you might be able to stop it after every time step and update the velocity in the BC, but that seems like it would be a LONG way of doing it).

If you're varying with position, then you can use a Profile. It's basically a text file you create that defines different variables with relation to position, and you attach this profile to your BC. Checkout the fluent users manual (chapter 7.26 to be specific) for format and implementation. I'm sure you could accomplish this with a UDF as well.

Hope this helps, and goodluck, Jason

You will find a (spatial) velocity profile UDF example in the Fluent site. I will explore and come back with a better pointer.

In the UDF manual you can find a simple example on how to do it using a DEFINE_PROFILE macro. It's a 2d turbine vane with parabolic inlet velocity profile (3.1.2)

Hope it can help

Edi.
