Dear experts,
following this website of FLOW-3D:

https://www.flow3d.com/hydraulic-boundary-conditions/

it is stated "To reduce the “profile-development-length” is the goal of a third new type of hydraulic boundary conditions, the Inlet Profile, which is currently under development." Does anyone know when we can expect this new feature?

Thanks for any hint and best regards

There were some complications with this development that caused its delay. It is currently not scheduled to be included in the 2017 11.3 release.

A grid overlay boundary is a potential alternative for some types of simulations. You can also define an inlet velocity profile through customization, but you would need code that yourself and have access to the necessary FORTRAN compilers

Yes, thanks for this hint. I used the grid overlay option in combination with utilizing several mesh blocks to reproduce the deskired velocity field quite well. It is a big effort, but it works satisfactorily.
