The wind object is described here:

http://www.cham.co.uk/phoenics/d_pol...m#Wind_Profile

and the wind_profile object here:

http://www.cham.co.uk/phoenics/d_pol...-type.htm#Wind

The wind object is very closely related to the wind_profile object. The latter specifies only the wind inflow boundaries, but later versions of PHOENICS are eqipped with the wind object, which is a single object that always fills the entire domain. Based on the wind direction it creates inflow boundaries at the domain edges using logarithmic or power law profiles on the upwind faces, and fixed pressure boundaries on the downwind faces. In addition, the upper, or sky boundary can also be made into a fixed pressure boundary.

Thank you, Michael
the dialog you showed to me is exactly what i want to set for wind profile
but I am using phoenics 3.5, it doesn't show the settings as you showed. could you please tell me How can i set these parameter such as roughness height in Phoenics 3.5.

and also i have some problem with relaxation control.
could you please tell me how can i get convergence.
thank you very much.

There are three alternative methods of introducing a wind inlet boundary condition, as follows: (a) a PIL Do loop over the inlet height in the Q1 file with appropriate PATCH and COVAL statements (see library case T306 as an example ); (b) a single PATCH per inlet plus COVAL statements, with the inlet values supplied via FORTRAN coding in Group 13 Section 12 of GROUND; or (c) a single PATCH per inlet plus COVAL statements, but with INFORM commands to define the wind inlet values, as in the example below, which will need two INLET PATCHes (named BLINL and BLINLW) in the Q1 file plus COVAL statements:
