Ali_Sh is on a distinguished road
I would like to specify a small section of a wall to be outlet. So, I have used codedFixedValue to specify some meshes which centers are within a considered circle on the wall. The code will not be difficult when the boundary condition would be specified by velocity only, not the flow rate. The model is as the following photo:

The inletWalls in the code is written only for showing how flow rate can be written for a patch. How to specify this boundary condition i.e. type flowRateOutletVelocity and its value in the outletWalls section?
Code:
