Hi..
You have to use UDF for defining velocity profile at inlet.

Code:
/**********************************************************************    udfexample.c                                                              UDF for specifying a steady-state velocity profile boundary  condition    **********************************************************************/   #include "udf.h"  /* must be at the beginning of every UDF you write */ 
  DEFINE_PROFILE(x_velocity,thread,index) {   
real x[ND_ND];        /*  this will hold the position vector */ 
  real y; 
  face_t f;     
begin_f_loop(f,thread)  /* loops over all faces in the thread passed                                 in the DEFINE macro argument  */ 
    {        F_CENTROID(x,f,thread);       y = x[1];       F_PROFILE(f,thread,index)  = 20. - y*y/(.0745*.0745)*20.;     }   end_f_loop(f,thread) }
