Dear OpenFOAM community,

I would like to set up a simulation for predicting the performance of a centrifugal pump in a virtual test bench using porous regions in order to set the circuit resistances.

The ingredients of my simulations are therefore one rotating region and three porous regions.

I am familiar with MRFSimpleFoam of foam-extend-3.2 but looking at the solver description, it does not manage porous regions. Then, looking at porousSimpleFoam solver, it manage porous regions but does not include MRF zones.

The solution seems to be the coupled solver MRFPorousFoam, but no tutorial is available.

Does somebody have experience with this solver and can share an example about it? Any suggestion for solving my problem, even using other OpenFOAM solvers/distributions is very appreciated.

Thank you very much.
Best regards
