Hi there,
I've got trouble implementing the BC:
the flux (rho*U) is given at the inlet,and I would like to implement the U's BC at the inletand I tried this:
type fluxcorrectedvelocity;
value (0 0.180 0);
it didn't work (I came out with a message saying that it is not included in the kinds of type)though it says clearly in the Guide that it calclulates the normal of the velocity at the inlet
Can anybody give a suggestion?Thanks in advance
