transient flow
Hello every one,

I am simulating a pipe flow.there are two inlets for this pipe.For one inlet flow velocity is independent of time,for another inlet flow velocity is varying with respect to time. For second inlet i am using transient boundary profile.
like this

(inlet point 72)

But after applying this boundary profile as boundary condition there is no flow in to the pipe.
I think the profile is not updating for each time step(means it is at first time step only 0 velocity).

And showing a waring there are no x,y,z velocities for inlet

I've stuck here for a long time i tried so many ways to overcome this problem and i am failed. So please give me any solution for this problem.

Thanks in advance.

If the velocity distribution on your inlet is constant, you should correct your second line, with:
(test transient 72 1) instead of (inlet point 72)

Thanks for u r reply max,

I will try with u r suggestion.

I also forgot to say that you have to modify the name "velocity" to "v_x" for velocity along x-axis (resp. v_y for y-axis and v_z for z-axis)
