I'm trying to set the absolute permeability of a rock in my model, but I can't find it in the engineering data section. Please, does anyone have an idea on how I could set absolute permeability in ANSYS Structural model?

It appears that these are the types of analyses for which permeability would be defined. For now, I presume you are setting up your analysis using APDL command objects. Continuing under this assumption, the permeability material property would also have to be defined with a command object (please correct me if I'm wrong about this).
For a pure diffusion calculation, or coupled structural-diffusion analysis used PLANE222/PLANE223/SOLID225/SOLID226/SOLID227 element types, I think leaving Csat (the saturation concentration) undefined causes the MAPDL solver to take the permeability value(s) that you have defined to be absolute rather than relative.
At present, I don't see a way to define absolute permeability for porous media flow analyses.

I set up the engineering properties, develop a geometry, setup the simulation (model) and solve the problem. Does anyone follow similar process and have managed to setup permeability in the engineering properties section of the simulation?
