I need to solve the fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media. my geometry is the simple cavity filled with satureted porous material. i want to solve the free convection in this domain but i have a problem for modeling the porous media and heat transfer by Fluent software. i have a question that: is the answer of fluent in this case reliable.

Provided you specify the momentum sink parameters in accordance with the user's manual, the porous media model works well.
