New ANGLED-IN and ANGLED-OUT object types have been created. These allow inlets and outlets to be placed on the outer surface of any arbitrarily-shaped blockage.

The active Inlet/outlet area is the area of intersection of the ANGLED-IN/OUT object with any blockage object. In the image below a cylindrical ANGLED-IN object is intersecting a quarter-cylinder blockage.

The inflow can be specified as Cartesian velocity components (as above), velocity normal to the blockage surface (as below), or as volume or mass flow rate.
