Hey, everyone I am currently dealing with a case where I have been provided with only the volumetric flow rate through an inlet.(no velocity or area description).
I want to use this as BC for the inlet in SU2 but there is no volumetric flow BC in SU2. I checked and there is only mass flow case where I need the velocity at the inlet. I know the density is there any way I can provide this boundary condition without further information.

Thanks in advance.

No, you need the surface area to compute the velocity. You'll need to compute the surface area from the geometry information
