 June 2, 2000, 08:30 Flow through filter media #1 Franco Belosi Guest   Posts: n/a I'd like to simulate the flow through a membrane filter. Really speaking I 'd just be interested in simulating the homogeneous streamline dispersion due to the high filter resistance (membrane of 0.8 um porosity). The patch "porous" with the porosity value seems to me not be enough to simulate the filter resistance to the flow. Anyone knows ho to do that?

I hope this clarifies.....Duane

Therefore we simply have the continuity equation for the volume averaged velocities. I hope this clarifies.....Duane
