 August 13, 2002, 04:27 how to set porous media? #1 may song Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links I must use porous media in full field. How to set porous media? I read the polis, one method is that i can use a standard blockage and make the material the domain material, then be able to set porosity, including vpor, epor, hpor. The other method is set commands in q1. we can use CONPOR(NAME,VALUE,TYPE,IXF,IXL,IYF,IYL,IZF,IZL) Which method I can use, what difference between these ? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This amounts to proper specification of the darcy coefficient if the darcy model is employed.

May I employ the darcy model without setting of porosity factors to carry out this function? Can you tell me more about setting of porous media? thanks

The heat transfer model is not available as a defualt option, but Darcy flow with heat transfer is exemplified by library case 811 which presumes local thermal equilibrium and uses PLANT to implement the required time-dependent source term in energy equation (this means you need a re-compilable version of PHOENICS). If you have a non-recompilable version of V3.4, then the INFORM facility (see on-line documentation)could be used instead of PLANT. I created this case as a simple demonstration example for the University of Auckland some time ago. I believe that Auckland used PHOENICS to simulate the type of problem you are interested in, and published some papers. I cannot recall the name of the PHOENICS User.
