Polynomial thermophysical properties and laminar porous Zone
 I am solving a simple exhaust system problem with porous domain. Want to avoid commercial Fluent software for simple problems.
 Initially i solved the Problem using constant Cp value with sutherland viscosity. My pressure drop in the system slightly varies between OpenFoam rhoPorousMRFSimpleFoam and Fluent.
 Fluent use Cp Polynomial varying with T, thermal conductivity polynomial varying with T, Laminar porous Zone, k and epsilon with intensity and hydraulic diameter.
 I want to invoke similar criteria for the above parameters in Open Foam to get close match in pressure drop.
 Can somebody please help me to give a detailed explanation or links as i am new to OpenFoam
 How to give Cp and thermal conductivity polynomial ( i have gone through the modification of thermoType in one of the thread hPsiThermo<pureMixture<sutherlandTransport<specieT hermo<hPolynomialThermo<perfectGas>>>>>;)
 Can somebody help me to give detailed procedure
 How to give laminar Porous zone
 What is the equivalent model in OpenFoam for k&epsilon of Fluent Intensity and hydraulic diameter. At present i am using k &epsilon of default properties specified in tutorial angledDuctImplicit
 Sorry to give a long description. Please help me which will save lot of bugs for me to avoid commercial software for such problems
