Hello everyone,

I need to simulate a diffusion flame upon a vertical porous plate (through which the fuel flows, the air flow is parallel to the plate, i.e normal to the fuel flow).

I copied the hotPlateLaminar tutorial, but I have to set a few parameters and I can't catch their meanings :

- ignRampTime : in constant/fireFoamProperties, ign is for ignite I guess.
- How can I choose the fuel in thermophysicalProperties, because there is a list of different mixtures of fuels, but I don't know to choose one.
- To set fireFoam on the laminar mode, do I have to choose the lowReOneEqEddy LESModel and change the LESModel parameters (ck and ce) to 0 ?

Thanks !
