CFX-5.5 does not have the same porous region implementation as CFX-4 yet.

To do porous "like" regions in cfx-5.5 you need to create a fluid subdomain. Once you have done this add a resistance source term to the momentum equations. Unfortunately it's only isotropic, and on top of this it's not true porosity because there is no void fractions or anything like that.
