Default How to set a porous body

Oxmox is on a distinguished road
I'm using Ansys workbench v14.0, I want to simulate the flow of air in an inlet distributor for a microchannel heat exchanger in Fluent. I was recommended to use a porous body calculation instead of the actual modelling of the microchannels in order to save calculation time, but couldn't get it to work yet.
So what do I have to do to be able to set a particular volume as a porous body of defined pressure drop and connect it to a fluid volume?
Thanks for any hints you can give me.
