Default porous medium as heat source
Ralf Schmidt
Posts: n/a

I have a porous medium that acts as a heat source. The source term for energy is given in W/m3, so does Fluent consider the porosity of the medium??? Or has the energy term to be calculated for the whole porous volume? (that results in a factor of 10 ! at a porosity = 0.9)

Thanks for any help! Ralf
