Hello!

I have managed to simulate water entering a 3D cube from the upper side. I did this by specifying 0/alpha1 for the upper side of the cube as:

type inletOutlet;
value uniform 1;
inletValue uniform 1;

The water flows into the cube. But how can I control how many liters or m³ per minute are released into the cube?

By setting an appropriate infow velocity!

Hello,

I propose "setField". In setField.dict you can specifiy a small cube filled with water - like in damBreak-Tutorial.

Best regards

bm

PS: Do I misunderstand the question?
