I look forward to hear from you shortly with best regards A.S.Adam

 March 12, 2002, 03:57 Re: Porous media... #4 july Guest   Posts: n/a I Adam ... I'll to tell you what i've got.. StarCD use a linearized form of permealbility function the equation is : -K U = grad P where K = alpha /V/ + beta where /v/ is the velocity magnitude... If you want simulate a porouos media you can use a soubroutine (sormom.f) which introduce sources in the momentum equation... the terms wich the subroutine introduces are two: s1 and s2: the source term id s=s1-s2 *U where s1 and s2 are user defined...
