Dear experts :

I want to simulate variation of fluid with time.

How did I set simulation time in fluent? Just like simulate 60 second that

how did I set.

Thanks your help !

hi,

if you set the solver to unsteady

define->model->solver

and than start iteration with

solve-> iterate

you can set the time step size and the total number of steps

Could I ask you a question again?

If I have a curve that x-axis is time and y-axis is discharge.

I want to use the cuve to set up upstream boundary.

How did I set ? Please help me.
