URGENT: How to set fixed volume rate in a air volume?
1 Attachment(s)
I have some problems with setting a fixed volume rate inside my computational domain, so extra BCs between two other pressure BC's.
I really don't know to which boundary condition (shown in green) it must be set. Can some one give me some advise about this problem? How can I solve this!

You can see I need to set a mass_flow_inlet or pressure inlet BC, and than the air must go through the rectangular shaps by fixed volume rate (can also be a fan), it will than be extracted by a pressure_outlet upstairs with a target mass_flow_rate. The rectangular shaps represent a heating source term to this volumes, which will heat up the air raising up.

The problem is in 3D and the meshing is done well.

IS THERE ANYone who has an idea about this? My master thesis is really f* up now: Frustrating!
