Hello ,
I am a new user, iHello ,
I am a new user, interested in using open foam for several simulation needs. the first is porous media simulation - solving the darcy law for a layered surface of different porosities. Having searched the messege board, i still am not sure if there exists a tutorial, or some documentation of the rhoExplicit/ImplicitPorousSimpleFoam tutorials, or/and the equations used in them. thanks in advance to any responses, Hanan. |

A compressible steady solver iA compressible steady solver is available: rhoPorousSimpleFoam (OF 1.5).
Two tutorial cases for that solver are available in the tutorial directory. Regards, Alberto |

I have OF 1.41, and it has oneI have OF 1.41, and it has one tutorial case with two schemes - explicit and implicit.
Are you refereeing to the same tutorials? is there additional info available in regard to the equation solved, the parameters meaning etc. ? Hanan. |

Hi Hanan,
yes, the solver sHi Hanan,
yes, the solver should be almost the same. I think they unified the explicit and implicit approach in a single solver in 1.5. You can find details in the doxygen pages, looking for porousZone. Regards, Alberto |
