Default inlet turbulence in LES (FLUENT)

Hi,
I am intending to use LES in FLUENT. I am using pressure based coupled solver with air as the working medium and assigning ideal gas properties. Since the flow is not incompressible, I cannot use velocity inlet boundary condition and hence the inlet turbulence generating techniques in FLUENT.
This page says (at the bottom) for all other boundary types apart from velocity inlet the flow is assumed as laminar in LES calculations. http://www.aeromech.usyd.edu.au/AMME...ug/node470.htm

Yes, I can increase the inlet length but I dont want to try it because of obvious reason (computation cost). Is there any alternative way to generate synthetic inlet turbulence (by hooking a UDF) with pressure inlet BC. If yes please explain or direct me to suitable references.

Thanks

Hi dynamics,
I have the same problem. I want to use vortex method perturbation for pressure inlet BC!
couldn't you find a solution for this problem?

Regards,
Ebrahim

sbaffini will become famous soon enough
Quoting the Fluent 14 Manual:

"Both the vortex method and the spectral synthesizer are available for velocity inlet and pressure inlet boundary conditions".

It was not available in Fluent 6.3 which I was using while posting the question.
