Hi,

I need to run a simulation with porous zones in OF211.

I've already ran the same simulation with OF230 but the setup of the porous zones - and the related files - is different from OF211, but I need to use that.

So, I created a "porousZones" file in "constant" folder, like suggested by the tutorial of the angleduct. And nothing else. I didn't create the fvOptions file which has been introduced from OF220 and neither the "PorosityProperties" file.

When I run the simulation in OF230, I get this:

Code:
Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Reading field p

Reading field U

Reading/calculating face flux field phi

Selecting incompressible transport model Newtonian
Selecting turbulence model type laminar
Creating finite volume options from fvOptions

Selecting finite volume options model type explicitPorositySource
    Source: porosity1
    - applying source for all time
    - selecting cells using cellZone porous1
    - selected 1741 cell(s) with volume 8.97893e-07

Porosity region porosity1:
    selecting model: DarcyForchheimer
    creating porous zone: porous1
And it's all ok.

While, when I try to run the same thing in OF211 (with the modified files) I get that:

Code:
Create time

Create mesh for time = 0

Reading field p

Reading field U

Reading/calculating face flux field phi

Selecting incompressible transport model Newtonian
Selecting turbulence model type laminar
No field sources present
And no indication about the porosity.

Is it correct? Or am I doing anything wrong??

Thanks,
Regards

Alessandro
