Hi,

i searched the forum about the above mentioned topic but only found threads about the cyclic fan bc.

Is there a way to add a momentum source or swirl or something like that to the inlet bc with fixed mass rate / velocity ?
I don't want to use e MRF Solver and I also don't want to model the fan itself.

Thanks in advance

Toni

I guess this is the subject of this thread: How to model a fan fixing the mass flow rate?

Hi mad,

I saw your post already but I don't want to model an internal fan. Just would like to at swirl or momentum at the inlet bc.

Regards,
Toni
