Summary0001328: How to use 'implicit porosity' unclear though deprication to simpleFoam or similar
Description [^]
and also [^]
both claim
'solvers in version 2.1 that include fvOptions, such as porous media... are consequently deprecated in favour of more general solvers'
but it is not clear how to run these solvers (eg simpleFoam) using pressure implicit porosity as the only way to define the porosity region is 'explicitPorositySource' and inter-region equivalent, ie no 'implicitPorositySource' class porosity region.

use porousSimpleFoam ...


here you find two examples ...explicit and implicit ...

Porous Media is defined under constant/porosityProperties

and have a look in system/fvSolution ... implicit porous treatment is activated through this nUCorrectors 2;

if you want explicit treatment switch to nUCorrectors 0;

Hope this helps ...have Fun!
