 August 30, 2002, 11:54 Fluent6.0 UDF inlet velocity BC #1 David Guest   Posts: n/a From wind tunnel test,we get a serial of fluctuating velocity courses along the vertical direction at the inlet in time domain ,these are random processes, and the sampling frequence is known. Could it be imposed such inlet velocity BC in Fluent6.0 through UDF? Thanks!

 September 5, 2002, 07:56 Re: Fluent6.0 UDF inlet velocity BC #5 David Guest   Posts: n/a Hi Sri, Thanks. My data is very large, so I am trying to import the velocity histories into Fluent through UDF by file operation. I meet a new problem now:I doubt whether Fluent could simulate this random problem. Since as the random BC is introduced, the field variables should be random process after convergence.This is an unsteady problem,but it differs from the periodical one. If, how we know it has achieved convergence when using unsteady solver?And how to get the result data? David.

Regards, sri
