Hi all users

I need some help setting up a problem in Fluent. I am modelling a wind tunnel test section with a slotted (porous) wall. My initial simulations will be 2D with a structured mesh. My question is this:

How do I make the wall of the test section representative of a porous boundary in 2D?

I know I need to consider the inertial and permeability coefficients for the porous boundary as well as know the theoretical pressure drop across the boundary - but what is the most effective mathematical approach of doing this? (If you have any reference material please advise).

I would really appreciate your help.
