Hi All,

I've got a problem with my 3D pipe with orifice plate simulation. I want to read a 3D velocity profile from 3D elbow pipe to check flow disturbances. i did everything like this :

1. simulation of 3D elbow pipe , write profile - outlet velocity x,y,z
2. read outlet profile from previous simulation to my next simulation pipe with orifice plate
3. set BC at Magnitude and direction, set velocity inlet as x,y,z, outlet velocity

Then i see another values of velocity at x,y,z in initializing. What is the cause of this? I tried to use the same mesh in this simulations but it did not worked.
