jonititan is on a distinguished road
I've been trying to construct what is effectively a windtunnel simulation, or something analagous to it
and i've been very confused trying to work out which
patchfield type i'm supposed to be using in this situation
there seems to be no similar situation in the tutorial examples to take hint from

could anyone here suggest a solution?

Excuse my ignorance (I don't know s### about wind-tunnels and their simulation) but to me the pitzDaily-cases sound very windtunnelish (lots of walls, a fixed-velocity inlet, a fixed-pressure outlet), but if you specify the physics you want to simulate more precisly (Mach, Reynolds, moving parts yes/no, known boundary conditions, etc) someone here might be able to give you a hint.
Note: I don't use "Friend"-feature on this forum out of principle. Ah. And by the way: I'm not on Facebook either. So don't be offended if I don't accept your invitation/friend request
