Dear FOAMers,

I'm trying to train myself with OpenFoam, I've created a simple example :

Idefined a simple geomtry (square tank) filled with water.
I would like to define an inlet for the steam flow rate in the bottom of my tank to see the effect on mixing, I suppose that the interFoam is a good candidate to solve this problem.
setFields is important to define the problem: deos any one knows how to define this ?
I have defined my inlet in blockMeshDict, U file to define the flowrate of the inlet by :
type flowRateInletVelocity;
massFlowRate constant 0.1;
rhoInlet 1;

How could I define the flowrate in the setFields ? Or is something missing to define my flowrate inlet ?
If any one can help to how to do to define the steam injection will be great !

Thank you in advance !
