boussineSimpleFoam, inlet/outlet and timestep errors - humanbody case

apologies for the length of this post but I need to make sure I get answers and the questions are understood properly. I am using boussinesqSimpleFoam solver for a human body with 100watts heatflux in a cube domain with inlet and outlet points overhead. Firstly, I have been having issues assigning appropriate inlet and outlet boundary conditions, inlet 0.4m/s – I have managed to get results for when 0/U inlet patch is fixed value and 0/U outlet patch is zerogradient and 0/p inlet is zeroGradient and 0/p outlet is calculated – however because of the zeroGradient bc as the solution continues the velocity at outlet reaches an unrealistic value, I am trying to replicate overhead and air conditioning
So, what inlet and outlet conditions do I need to have , I have tried to use flowRateVelocityInlet as well as inletOutlet but am unsure how to properly impose them.
I also expexted to see a thermal plume but one is not present...
Also my timestep errors seem to be growing – which is a concern – again I believe this to be due to the improper inlet and outlet boundary conditions
please see attached for some better understanding

thank a lot

For the use of inletOutlet boundary condition have a look for the tutorial in incompressible/pimpleFoam/TJunction
If you are looking for a tutorial with a special boundary condition use these commands:
cd $FOAM_TUTORIALS/ find . -type f | grep -E "/0.*/" | xargs grep "inletOutlet" | less
