Default Modelling wall porosity in Fluent

Hi All,

Currently doing a third year design project which inlcudes the modelling of a Caterham/Westfield '7' type car.

I'm modelling a side on cross section of the car and want to add a porostiy to the front radiator grill section whereby some air will flow into the grill and hence the inside of the car but alot will flow round it.

The only option I have found in gambit is to specify a boundary condition of Porous Jump, is this a suitable one to chose? and also how do I specify the parameters for it?

Thanks in advance,

Chris faulkner
