Default power law in a porosity source

yurifrey is on a distinguished road

I would like to set a porosity source with a power law like:

F = A u^(0.5)
My problem is that openFoam seems unable to manage exponents < 1 (I get an error, while there are no problems if the exponent is > 1). Is there a solution?

Thank you!
