Hello guys!!

I'm trying to leave my simulation with the following boundary condition: The fluid that enters the upper part must come out at the bottom, and the fluid that enters the lower part must come out at the top. My simulation is a channel with cylinders inside, as in the attached image.

How do I do that?

My boundary file looks like this and I was wondering if it is correct::

Code:
