tryh the following: two zones one fluid one porous with inlet outlet and the wall boundaries do not try to define explicetly the contact. I guess you are working with multibody part (Merge all parts in DM into one) and name the selections in Meshing

Thanks Bryon for your suggestion,
my problem is from the initial stage. I am simulating the catalytic converter and have modeled in CATIA with two substrate(substrates here act as a porous media where reactions are taken place and have hexagonal cells) inside it. I have simply assembled those two substrates. Now should i mesh the substrate as well as fluid body at a time(if so then the meshing will not be completely done) or separately(if so the substrate will be meshed twice)? OR shall I create only external cover while modeling(meshing as well) and while giving bc's in fluent i shall create a block mention bc's as
please help me since I am novice in this domain
