Hi all,

Does anyone could explain to me how to set a variable (in function of time) inlet speed ? (i.e variable boundary condition for the inlet in a sonic flow)

Thank you very much,

Maybe you can realize this with groovyBC:

If you do not manage to use groovyBC, you can also do that by adding a small piece of code into your solver that modifies the inlet condition at each time step.
