thermal porous zone dictionary
dear Foamers,

there is file called thermalPorousZone it is like PorousZone but have another entry for temp. this file used in case of energy equation.

can any one help me explain usage of this new entry and if any tutorial case uses it ?

is it necessary to add properties for this porous zone to be included in energy equation ?

in normal solvers this porous zone is included as resistance in U,P equations. in case of using energy equation is temp. calculated in this zone will be for solid material of porous media or for fluid penetrating it?.

thanks in advance :)
