Question How to add impedance outlet BC

Hi everyone!

I am a fresh foamer and my recent work really needs help;

The question is how to implement an impedance/resistance outlet Boundary condition. This boundary condition can be described by a simple equation:


where P is the outlet pressure, F the volume flux at the outlet, R is the resistance. (Taken from the electronic circuit equation U=I*R); If I get the outflow volume flux of a specific outlet, I can calculate the outlet-pressure and then apply it to this outlet.

The main problem is that I don't know how to modify the original fixed-value pressure-outlet as desired, can anybody help?
