The impact of a porous region on the flow field can be determined by examining either velocity components or pressure values. Graphical plots (including XY plots and contour or vector plots) or alphanumeric reports of the following variables/functions may be of interest:
These variables are contained in the specified categories of the variable selection drop-down list that appears in postprocessing panels.
Note that thermal reporting in the porous region is defined follows:
|=||porosity of the medium|
|=||fluid phase thermal conductivity (including the turbulent contribution, )|
|=||solid medium thermal conductivity|
| For porous media involving surface reactions, you can display/report the surface reaction rates using the
Arrhenius Rate of Reaction-n in the
Reactions... category of the variable selection drop-down list.
