Hi I am a beginner at using OpenFOAM and I need to use it for my masters project.

I aim to use OpenFOAM to model a homogeneous canopy using techniques described in this article (Equations on Pages 3-5):

How would one go about adding a source/sink term to the momentum, turbulent kinetic energy and turbulent dissipation transport equations and apply them to a specific porous domain in the model? I am currently going over the turbineSiting tutorial for in compressible flow and was wondering whether the transport equations could be modified in this tutorial?

Any help would be appreciated,
