Default Deffusion Coeff.
Posts: n/a
Hi everyone, Now i have a case where a gas will diffuse into a porous media. But before that, the diffusing gas will pass through a inlet pipe which donnot contain the porous media.

I am using the species transport model. So my question is, what diffusio coeffient should i use?? the diffusion coeff for gas-gas? or the Deff for the gas-solid?? Thanks,

In this case, you may want to use different diffusion coefficients for different regions.

Dg0:diffusivity of the gas

Dg,eff:effective diffusivity of the gas in porous region


I hope that answered your question.

The Do and Deff i knew already. but then stev, in fluent i think we only can input one D for one gas pair... am i right?? correct me if i am wrong. So how do i input two different D??

anythings helpfull will be appreciated. what do you thinks, stev.??

also, can anyone provide some references about gas-gas diffusion in porous media so that i can verify my simulation.
