I am trying to model flow through a porous medium, I have defined the boundary condition of the zone I require to be porous as a porous-jump, however I am having difficulties on how to actually define the particle (pore space material) and matrix materials within the porous medium. In CFX it is quite simple as you define the domain as porous and then you can define the particle and matrix regions in the same pane.

The all you need is a value for porosity and permeability (isotropic or anisotropic). That's all.
Regard yours
