chri is on a distinguished road

I am trying to define massflow inlet profiles. My profiles should look like a hollow cone spray! ( picture attached)
When trying to implement the mass-flow vectors (x,y,z-direction, massflux), I get two false profile files are correct, so is the allocation to the read-out grid points!
The values between the profile vectors are interpolated...what Idon't know is, if the inlet values are interpolated with the wall values!

Where can I search the problem? Do you think, it's a bug, or can the reason be the flow inside?

I would really appreciate some help!!

kind regards,christian
