Default timeVaryingMappedFixedValue + turbulentinlet

I have been simulating a channel flow using different RANS-models with an externally given inlet BC for the mean velocity by using timeVaryingMappedFixedValue. This works fine.

Now I want to run a LES simulation on the same domain. I want to keep the inlet BC for the mean velocities, given by the external data, but I must get in some fluctuations in this inlet. Basically what I want is a combination of "timeVaryingMappedFixedValue" and "turbulentInlet", where I just add some fluctuations to the mean profile supplied by "timeVaryingMappedFixedValue". Does anybody know how this can be achieved?

For doing LES, that is much better to run the channel flow with a constant source term, pressure gradient, and then sample the results to your domain using timeVaryingMappedFixedValue.

external data, turbulentinlet
