Hi everyone!

I'm working on a gas filtration. My problem is that I can't make the filter medium to be a different interior part (so, in fluent, I can set it has a porous zone). Does anyone knows how to do this??

Right click on parts to create a new part, or if you already have the part for the porous zone, right click on it in the tree and choose "add to part", the third icon in the DEZ that pops up will be "blocking material, add blocks to part". Click that and then select the volume blocks that represent your porous zone...

Clearly, for this to work, you will need to have split your blocking to capture (separate out) the porous zone. It also makes selection easier if you can use the index control (right click on the top of the blocking branch) to reduce your display so you can more easily see and select the correct blocks...

For good convergence, make sure to use match edges or adjust your edge parameters for a smooth size transition between the porous zone and the adjacent zones. To sudden of a transition will cause problems.

Have fun.
