Dear experts,

I need to use the porous medium solvers which are available in OpenFOAM, porousSimpleFoam, rhoPorousSimpleFoam, interFoam. But the problem I have is that my porosity/permeability is a function of position (x,y,z). In other words, porosity at (x1,y1,z1) is different from the one at (x2,y2,z2). How do I do this on any of these solvers?

Thank you very much!
