Hi everyone!
I'm trying to simulate air throught a Combustion Chamber with ANSYS AIM, so let's say that I have a cylinder with holes: multiple inlets but only one outlet.

I have calculated the flow rate throught each hole and the main inlet so I use the flow rate as my boundary at inlet. For continuity purposes I set the outlet as the sumatory flow rate.

The problem is that in the solutions window, when I check each inlet the flow rate is "wrong": for example I set 3 kg/s and the calculated value is 0,03 kg/s

Does anyone knows what I'm doing wrong? THANKS A LOT
