KyriakosPaso is on a distinguished road

I need to simulate an air flow through a porous media, but I do not want to use the porousSimpleFoam or the rhoPorousSimpleFoam. I want to import the equations governing the problem in another solver, such as icoFoam.

I tried to build a new solver, named porousIcoFoam. I used the equation:

fvVectorMatrix UEqn
+ fvm::div(phi, U)
- fvm::laplacian(nu, U)
- (nu)*(D&U)*lamda

where gamma=porosity at the porous media, and gamma=0 otherwise

lamda=1 at the porous media, and lamda=0 otherwise

In setFeilds i have defined lamda and gamma, and in transport properties the tensor D.

Is this a correct way to solve my problem?
