basic porous media
Hi, im trying to model a very simple problem with porous media. The only information i have about the porous material is its permeability. Does anyone know how to convert this to something i can easily enter into fluent?

thanks Andrew

Re: basic porous media
Try to read chapter 6 of fluent 6.o users' guide , I think you will find some useful information there

good luck R. Misama

Re: basic porous media
As long as you don't have localized constrictions that would result in inertial terms, the input for a porous medium in a steady-state analysis is permeability.
