define porous zone in gambit
1 Attachment(s)
Hello FOAMers,

I want to simulate flow through and around porous media.
I created a mesh in block-mesh and blockmesh defines the porous zone in the cellZone-file.
Now I want to build the mesh with gamit and then export the mesh to OF.
But how can I define a porous zone with Gambit?
In the attached file you can see the channel with the porous block inside.
Has anyone an idea how to solve the problem?

thanks a lot, have a good day....

hi Micheal

had you resolved that problem?

in Gambit you have to isolate the volume which will be treated as porous.
For that, use split tool.
Once you volume is splitted, you can assign it as porous zone in the specify continuum types panel
