i've been trying to construct a model of the flow around 2 square cylinders
using turbFoam and the inlet as pressureInlet
and the outlet as pressureOutlet
i set the velocity field of the inlet as 20
in FoamX
but once the simulation has started the inlet velocity drops to almost nothing
is this something to do with the inlet type?
am i using the wrong one?
i'm trying to imitate a windtunnel here with a uniform 20m/s windspeed
is this something to do with the pressure?

Hi, Im doing similar calculations but with nuclear reactor flows. For me it works fine to have outlet defined as pressureOutlet (p=0) and Inlet as only inlet with (U=20). This should be enough conditions.
