How can i model a porous medium in Ansys fluent???

 July 23, 2016, 05:10 Modelling heat flow in porous media in Fluent #5 New Member   mm Join Date: May 2016 Posts: 17 Rep Power: 2 Dear all, I am modelling heat transfer through a porous medium (from hot air to porous medium), have defined porous medium in fluid cell zone, resistance coefficients, porosity, heat transfer coefficients since i am using non-equilibrium thermal model. this is transient 2D simulation. (a vertical column having porous material inside and top inlet for hot air and bottom outlet). in start temperature distribution along the domain is fine and close to experimental values, but after 300 or 400 seconds temperature does not change or changes very little at all sections of domain and further it goes below the experimental values. I m using both fluid and solid properties as temperature dependent. please guide me where i am doing wrong so I am not getting the uniform trend of temperature variation along the domain in whole simulation period. please Regards
