Hello everyone. I think I'm going to have make a minor modification to the pressureInletVelocity BC. It seems this BC as it ought to, gets U from the pressure known at the boundary; however, it sets the tangential velocities to zero. I am simulating a mixed-convection case and there is a free-stream velocity along with an inflow to account for entrainment for natural convection. Thus, this BC is set the free-stream near the boundary and it diffuses into the my computational domain and I'm thinking that perhaps modifying the BC to allow for my free-stream would be a good fix. What do you guys think? Has anyone modified this BC? Thanks.
