Default Porous Formulation in Aerodynamic computation
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I'm doing the computation of the aerodynamics around an aeroplane, I use the segragated solver and I have to choose the porous formulation, physical or superficial, but in my simulation there is no porous zone, so why do Fluent ask me this option? Which one could be the better choice?

Thanks in advance

porous formulation is only used if you have porous media. If no fluid regions are defined as porous then it doesn't matter which one it is set to and you can ignore.
