Hi,

I am trying to understand a setup file where a porous baffel is been used to guide the flow into a certain diretions.

The model uses the following settings:

SOURCES:

MOMENTUM SOURCE:

ISOTROPIC LOSS MODEL:

Option = Permeability and Loss Coefficient

Resistance Loss Coefficient = 1 [m^-1]

END

END

END

The resistance loss coeff is set to 1 m^-1. The flow in the channel is 15 m/s.

How can I calculate the degree of open/porousity ?

Does the Resistance Loss Coefficient equal 1 mean that the baffel is 95 % open or ???

Any advis is welcome.

Regards

Jens
