Default Material in Porous media

Hi all

I am new in using Fluent. I just started using Fluent 6.1 to model reacting flow through a porous media.

I read the fluent manual but till now I failed to do the following

1. specify the material for porous media

2. Porosity of the porous media

3. type of reaction site available

4. creating udf to define my reaction

Please any one have an idea how to handle them. I will be glad if you let me know how I can do all the four task above.

Thanks in adavnce
