hello, the inlet of my mode

the inlet of my model is not parallel to one of the global axis. therefore the flow is not orthogonal to the inlet, if i define the velocity U in x, y or z direction. Is there a possibility to define a global coordinate system or to transform the model???

I have a similar question.
Is it possible to define a local coordinate system to orient an input or output velocity (when this one is not align withe the global axis)?

Sure, just create a "Local Coordinate Frame" and choose your prefered face for reference
