Default Flow through porous medium
Kiran AS
Posts: n/a
I am new to CFD and was determining if Fluent package could model the following -

Moisture inside a porous medium vaporizes due to application of heat and further travels in the z direction. From my initial search I found that the user defined functions in Fluent can be used to model the porous medium. Is there a better way than this or a better software package specifically for porous medium.

Appreciate your help.

Fluent has its own Porous Media model, but you have to know all the inputs to use it. This requires lab data to know the inertia and permeability. A UDF could do it as well, but you have to write that yourself.
