Pressure-inlet outlet velocity


  • Wrapper around the mixed condition
  • Applicable to the velocity vector field
  • Flow out of the domain: assigns a zero gradient condition
  • Flow into the domain: assigns a velocity based on the flux in the patch-normal direction


The condition is specified in the field file using:

    type                pressureInletOutletVelocity;
    tangentialVelocity  <field value>;
    value               <field value>;

    // Optional entries
    phi                 phi;
