Dear foamers,

I wanted to ask if someone has already simulated fluid-solid interaction with the solid having porosity. I am aware of the fluid-solid interaction in the solids4foam and usually for the porosity, one would add resistance to the velocity equations (Navier-Stokes equations). I would like to check how a tissue behaves under a given flow. Please let me know if someone has done something similar.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Thomas,

Poro-elasticity (or poro-elasto-plasticity) was first implemented for solids in OpenFOAM by Tian et al. (2015) and shared in the minigeotechfoam toolbox. I have integrated this code into solids4foam.

Subsequently, the group in UT Austin led by Prof Sharma has published a number of articles for petroleum applications e.g.
