Porous media - star cd
Dear All,
I initially did the processing and post processing tasks in Star Design and later using "start pro star GUI" command i started to work with the model in Pro Star . then i changed the properties of the mesh by including a porous region inside the mesh ( followed the procedure in Tutorial 2.5 and chapter 8 in methodology volume for calculation of constants) . I had to do this as in star design, there are no option to model porous media. when i run the solver it states that the solution diverges. (the model converges in both star design and in pro star before including the porous media)
Can any one help me with this??.
is it simply because we cant change the material initially defined as a fluid to a porous media in star design or is it some other error?

Please help. thanks lot in advance.
