Hi, i need to model a porous radiator for a FSAE car in OpenFOAM, what boundary and volume conditions should i use on the radiator block and domains?
Meshing with Pointwise
I don't care about heat exchange, only about air speed since i'm working on the aerodynamics

You want to use the faceSet BC type for porous boundaries between volumes. The faceSet BCs are not inflated when the grid is exported from Pointwise. Instead, all the tri/quad faces in the BC patch are included in a faceset.

I am not sure which VC type is appropriate.
