Default use outlet as inlet
Posts: n/a
Does anybody know if it's possible to use the resulting outlet conditions in a model as inlet conditions at the other side of the model?

What's your question about? I guess, probablly, what you need is the Cyclic Boundary Condition.

It does sound like you need to use the XCYCLE option, which in effect links the first and last X planes. The POLIS Encyclopaedia entry on XCYCLE gives more info. In VR-Editor, you can turn it on from Main menu / sources.

If the flow is fully-developed, the Encyclopeadia entry 'Fully Developed Flow' gives details on how to proceed.

If my memory serves me correctly this is covered in the turtorials on doing some coding in ground.

The one I remember links the input to a outlet directly to the output of an inlet - to simulate a fan operation.

At the moment I dont have access to POLIS to provide the link.

Hope this helps, Leon
