I am trying to solve a problem which involves a compressible flow in porous media with heat transfer effects. My domain is completely filled with porous media i.e all the internal cells have a porosity of 0.6. I imported the mesh from starCD by "star4ToFoam", but the imported OF mesh didn't detected the porous region. Could any body tell me how to assign a porosity of 0.6 to all the internal cells of this imported OF mesh. I edited the files of tutorial 'angledductImplicit' of 'rhoPorousSimpleFoam'.
