Drying from porous media

      Hi,

      I am trying to model drying of water from a porous media made with uniform glass spheres. I am applying 1000 W/m2 heat flux from top to accelerate the evaporation process. Can anybody please help me to model these phenomena in ANSYS or from where can I start?

      You'll need a multiphase model. Remember that porous media is a lumped parameter model so technically doesn't occupy any space. You may also want the non-equilibrium part to account for the glass warming up.

      Hi Rob Thank you very much for your answer. Can you please provide me an example from which I can get the basic idea?

      No, we're not permitted to share examples on here (the wider community can) due to the export laws we operate under. I can say it's fairly straightforward and I used the Eulerian model last time I did it in support of a client.
