Parabolic Velocity profile in a channel
Hello to all
I'm trying to apply a parabolic velocity profile at inlet of a 2D rectangular channel.
possibly, one way is to apply a nonuniform velocity by specifying velocity of every point of inlet, but it's so hard to change it.
Is any way to adjust a velocity profile by giving a function like Ux = 3(1 - y^2) ?
