srikanthallu is on a distinguished road

In the tutorial/example for chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam i.e., heatExchanger, the porous region is modeled as fluid. I am trying to model this as a solid region since there is a volumetric heat source. The solver utilizes interRegionHeatTransferModel between regions using constantheatTransfer model. Does this model always expect the porous region to be fluid ?? Because it is expecting a surfaceField 'phi' and is giving me an error message:

request for surfaceScalarField phi from objectRegistry porous failed
available objects of type surfaceScalarField are

If possible, please point me to appropriate location from where this error could be originating...
