Hello everyone,
My question is, how is the turbulence treated in the porous media in openFoam. In Fluent, there is a "laminar zone" option, which sets the turbulent viscosity to zero. Is there something similar in openFoam ?

Regards,

Hi,

Have you solved your problem?

I am also simulating flow through porous meadia. In my calculation I got high values of k, but the turbulence inside the porous media should be zero, like in Fluent.

So what can I do.

I used the rhoPorousSimpleFoam solver.

Any ideas?
