I'm modeling a tube flow with two inlets and two outlets. I use the Large eddy simulation, and initialize with 'all zone'. Then, only inlet 1 can flow out while inlet 2 can not flow out. I was so puzzled. Thank you for your reply.

You should learn how to initialize properly and not using the "compute from" feature. The compute from feature is a convenience option. When you choose compute from, the values that will eventually be used set as the initial values will appear in the GUI immediately. What you see is what you get. If you're unhappy with it, then change it!

If you are doing LES, it's better to start with a steady or RANS simulation to provide the initial conditions.

It is very nice of you to answer this question. With your advice, the simulation is worked correctly. Thank you very much. And I am still wondering that why two inlets can flow out with other viscous model when compute from 'all zone', while only inlet 1 can flow out with LES.
