Hi, Foamers,

I'm green hand to OpenFOAM, If I set the BC in U as fellowing:

inlet
{
type massFlowRateInletVelocity
massFlowRate 1.2// 1.2kg s^-1
}

What should I do with the same BC in P. It is incompressible flow, P can be calculated from U.

Thanks

Hello,
I define it zeroGradient.
Also if you see same cases in tutorial files zeroGradient type is used for inlet.
