Hello everyone. I am a newbie working with FLUENT. I'm working on the task to school. I will outline my problem. I'm trying to simulate windy turbulence in a plastic box (0.5 m x 0.5 m x 2.5 m) with one input and one output. After the simulation, i compares the simulation results with real measurements.
Problem is: Setting the input boundary conditions. Fails to achieve a comparable situation as in real measurements.

The question is: Can someone help me with setting the input boundary conditions? On entry is the fan, the output is just a hole. Not thinking about heat transfer i am solving just a flow of air.

Thanks a lot for your help.

This is real measurmets of velocity cross hole with fan.

And this is simulation.

If you have the fan curve, then you can use the Fan BC as the inlet BC
