Hi, i am a new user of openFoam. I am trying to simulate a flow with Lagrangian Solver(MPPICFoam) whcih has Lagrangian and Eulerian coupling. now I need to add porous Zone to the case set. MPPIC SOlver doesn't solve for porosity, So i need to modify the solver.

Using tutorial i tried modifying pisoFoam solver to solve for porostiy and it worked. The modification for pisoFoam are
1. including #include "IOporosityModelList.h" header file before main.
2. including #include "createPorousZones.H" header file after main
3. adding pZones.addResistance(UEqn); in UEqn
4. modifiying Make/files, Make/options and compiling the solver.

Now my question is if i do the same above modifcations for MPPIC solver does it consider porosity? or do i need to change any thing extra.
