Hi,

Is it possible (I think so) to have two different inlets with different characteristics (e.g. different velocity)?

If yes, how do you do it or where can I read how to do it?

Regards,

Lasse

What should be the problem?
I have three different inlets. You simply have three different patches then defined with inlet conditions (of course they have to exist in your grid (constant/polyMesh/boundary)).

.e.g in U
INLET1
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (10 0 0);
}
INLET2
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (5 0 0);
}
INLET3
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (8 0 0);
}

Let me know if you consider any difficulties. Perhaps I can help you.

Hi,

Thanks.

I found out that you can just rename them. I did that first, but forgot a "(" somewhere so it complained about the patchname. I therefore thought you couldn't do that.

It works now so I am happy about that.

Have a nice weekend.
