Hi everyone,

I am dealing with the problem of metal foam in a rectangular duct. I want to simulate foam as a porous media. I specified BC as porous jump in GAMBIT. when I try to import it to FLUENT 6.3.26 I get to error "Cannot change porous_jump to porous-jump because there is only one adjacent cell thread."

Nitin Pathak said that "This error means that u r applying porous jump BC on extreme boundary..on the other side of porous jump there is nothing..actually porous jump can be applied on a face which connects two side u have fliud flow nd other side some porous media like sand. then it will work regards nitin said the solution"...

But I couldnt solve the problem. Are there any suggestions???
