(Tabular) Transient Boundary Condition ???
Hi guys,

I would be very thankful if someone could help me out, with the following: I'am simmulating unsteady 3D-model with a continuous air-inflow. From t=0s I give a temperature (increase) pulse for about 0.2s at the inlet boundary condition. This step increase can easily be done by adjusting the boundary conidtion temperature manually. However since my experiments show different step shape (more Gaussian like, hence periodic). I want to make use of the Tabular Transient Profile so I can impose my experimental data for the short temperature increase. I tried to create such a profile file, but I don't get it worked. I checked the online manual and still I cannot get Fluent reading the profile file properly. Does any have an example for me of such a profile file or any suggestions.

Thanks a lot.
