mofasamo is on a distinguished road
Hi, im having trouble trying to create a source function for fluent to model accelerated flow, im modelling the flow around a simpe cylinder.

it is insufficient to just change the inlet velocity as i want to model a cylinder accelerating and want to investigate the flow during the acceleration, and at the moment think this can only be done by using a source term. could anybody help please, im not sure how to create a source function to do this.
