can fluent capture BOUNDARY LAYER of POROUS zone?
 
I am modeling Vertical flat plate for laminar natural convection in an infinite porous media.

But there's no boundary layer for velocity and temperature. The only case that will capture BOUNDARY LAYER is when porosity=1. There will be no boundary layer when porosity is smaller than 1.0.

I want to know if FLUENT can capture boundary layer when there is POROUS MEDIA in the domain.
