Hi all, I'm running a simple 3d transient case with a velocity inlet from the bottom. I would like to stop the inlet after 0.2 s and then run the simulation for about 10 s. I made 2 attempts:
change the inlet velocity magnitude to 0 after 0.2 s
change the bc type of the inlet to wall after 0.2 s
After both actions, the solver has difficulties in convergence in temperature. Please can anyone help with the problem, thanks in advance.

Hi Aitor, thanks a lot for your reply. Gonna try to set the magnitude as a sigmoid expression.
