Dear all,

when I am using FLUENT, its sometimes very nice to take the "outflow" BC where you can define which amount of fluid leaves through the outlet e.g. if you have 3 outlets you can specify 10% for outlet1, 50% for outlet2 and 40% for nr.3.

Does anyone know whether OpenFOAM provides such a condition as well? This would be great.

That you all in advance.

I can imagine that flowRateInletVelocity would be suitable with a negative value and different strengh but i am looking for something that seperates the outflow on base of percentage so that it calculates the flow rates itself.
