Hi foamers,

Does anyone know how I can model natural convection flow in porous media by using openFOAM?

I know that openFOAM has porousSimpleFoam solver which deals with steady state, incompressible, turbulent flow in porous media. Its equations show that this solver solves FORCED CONVECTION FLOW but now I want to simulate NATURAL CONVECTION. How should I do this?

Any idea is appreciated.
