Question timeVarying and surfaceNormal values at the same time

Is there any way to use both timeVaryingUniformFixedValue and surfaceNormalFixedValue as inlet conditions at the same time?

I am trying to set a varying velocity condition on a curved inlet, and the inlet velocity direction must be normal to the inlet faces.

Any ideas?

I'd like to know the same!
What should I do when the patch is not axisymmetric so that I can not just use Ux, Uy or Uz with timeVayringUniformFixedValue to get a normal velocity into the domain?
with regards!
