How can I enter a parabolic inlet profile in Comsol for 3D tube modeling?

In summary, the conversation is about someone trying to model a tube in Comsol Multiphysics with a parabolic inlet profile for velocity. They have tried using variables and extruding the inlet plane, but have not been successful in getting the desired result. They are also not receiving any responses to their question.

hello everyone
is anybody here using comsol multiphysics?
i'm trying to model a tube which the inlet is a fully developed fluid
but the problem is how to enter a parabolic inlet profile for velocity
in 2d axisymmetric it is very simple. but my model is 3d
i've entered "r" as a variable in definitions{r=sqrt((x^2)+(y^2))} and another variable for velocity, using "r". but the solution is not converged
how can i give the correct parabolic inlet?

I'm sorry you are not generating any responses at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us? Any new findings?

i fixed it by extrude the inlet plane to make sure that the inlet velocity profile is parabolic.
but no progress in giving parabolic profile to the software.
