Thermal non-equilibrium model of porous medium

Does CFX has the feature to model the thermal non-equilibrium of porous medium?

The thermal equilibrium model has only one energy equation which assume that the solid phase and fluid phase of the porous medium are having same temperature.

The thermal non-equilibrium model will solve the problem using two energy equations, one energy equation for solid phase, and one energy equation for fluid phase.

CFX has treated the porous domain as a fluid region with momentum sinks, but when comes to energy or temperature, it doesn't solve the solid phase temperature of the porous medium.

Can someone advise? Thanks
