Hi all,
i'm reading a paper where some experimental data was obtained given an inlet velocity and turbulence profiles. I was wondering if there is a way to insert a turbulence profile as an inlet boundary condition.

You can use the "timeVaryingMappedFixedValue" boundary condition.
The tutorial "pitzDailyExptInlet" is a good material for learning how to use it.

Best regards,
