stagnation at groovyBC
How is it possible to have a p0 and T0 boundary condition without having velocity field at inlet in groovyBC?just these stagnation properties are known.its important for me.sorry for repeat.

do you mean fixedValue boundary conditions?

hi dear treima
no.its known only stagnation temp and press on inlet patch.then I dont know haw I put velocity boundary condition.Im working on it.but ill thank any idea.
Thank you for your helping and benefitical suggestions on before posts.thanks.

For the velocity i would suggest zeroGradient.

thank you treima
But I think velocity should read from outside of the grid domain.due to characteristic law you may know that tell at inlet 5 property should be assigned from out and only 1 from inside the domain and vice at outlet for stability of solution.
But velocity have 3 components
But ill examine your good suggestion if it didn't have stability problem all is ok.
