Default codedFixedValue to couple velocity and pressure?

seilgu is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to simulate a Fan Filter Unit, when trying to model the HEPA filter at the output, I'm trying to impose the condition that for a small area, the outward velocity component builds up a pressure difference.
For example if the outflow velocity is 1m/s, the pressure on the inside surface of the filter is locally 10Pa; if the outflow is 2m/s, pressure inside is 20Pa.

This is different from the "type fanPressure" condition which sums the total flow rate, so I'm trying to use fixedCodedValue type condition.

the 0/p file contains this outlet patch:

    type    codedFixedValue;
    value   $internalField;
    name    test;
        scalarField& pField = *this;
        const vectorField& UFace = patch().lookupPatchField<volVectorField, vector>("U");
        const vectorField& np = patch().nf();

        int prop_coef = 1;
        forAll(pField, faceI) {
            pField[faceI] = prop_coef*UFace[faceI] & np[faceI];       
The 0/U file contains :

    type            pressureInletOutletVelocity;
    value           $internalField;
    inletValue      $internalField;
The solver is simpleFoam, and with deltaT = 0.001, it still makes sigFpe errors.

I've been learning OpenFOAM for only about 2 weeks so if you could kindly explain in detail if anything doesn't make sense.
