Boundary profile for porous media coefficients
 
Hi,
I would like to know if it is possible to use a Bou
ndary Profile to define the resistance coefficients of the Porous Zone. I am reading the Fluent users manual but dont find a clear explanation. At one point under "Using Boundary Profiles", the manual says: "Boundary profiles cannot be used to define volumetric source terms. If you want to define a non-constant source term, you will need to use a user-defined function." Do the porous media coefficients fall under the category of volumetric source terms?
I would thank any help or comment.
Regards,
Franz
