Hi all,

I am trying to simulate a membrane separation of a solution of NaCl through a membrane.

I have defined three zones (inlet, porous medium and out).
The solution is made by using the species transport and defining a mixture of NaCl and H2O<l>.

I set the porous zone as porous medium and in its materials tab select NaCl and define the permeability for it over there. Also I set the zones with NaCl solution and the run then converges.

However, when I try plot contours of the species individually nothing gets drawn.
Velocity magnitude appears but no profile or contour for the either of species.

Do you have any idea or experience with this problem?
