Mapping Zones or Surfaces?!?

I am trying to model a helically enhanced tube in fluent and I am trying to get away from modeling the whole length of the pipe to get the fully developed flow and the pressure drop. So, I am trying to work with only one 360 degree section of the pipe (one cycle of the helix). What I cant figure out is how to run the problem with a uniform velocity profile at the inlet, obtain a solution at the exit, and then map the solution at the exit to the inlet of a new run and then run the solution again. I would repeat this procedure until i felt the flow was fully developed in the solution. So, I am trying to map the exit solution to the inlet of a new run. Does anyone know how to do this or where I would begin. I have been all through Fluent's manual and I just cant seem to find the solution. Although, some of the things that I came across I did not fully understand.
Thanks for reading!
