Boundary profiles are used to specify flow conditions on a boundary zone of the solution domain. For example, they can be used to prescribe a velocity field on an inlet plane. For information on boundary profiles, see Section 7.26.
Reading Profile Files
To read the boundary profile files, invoke the Select File dialog box by selecting the File/Read/Profile... menu item.

Writing Profile Files
You can also create a profile file from the conditions on a specified boundary or surface. For example, you can create a profile file from the outlet conditions of one case. Then you can read that profile into another case and use the outlet profile data as the inlet conditions for the new case.
To write a profile file, use the Write Profile panel (Figure 4.5.1).

FLUENT saves the grid coordinates of the data points in the selected surface(s) and the values of the selected variables at those positions. When you read the profile file back into the solver, the surface name is the profile name and the value name is the field name that appears in the drop-down lists in the boundary condition panels.
