Meshing of Porous media in fluent CFD

    • AsadReman

      I am following a research paper for my project but there are various mesh related terminologies i don't understand for porous media calculation and generation. Neither i am able to find them during meshing in fluent solver. Please identify what are these and where to find them. These include:

      mesh distance L , opening area ratio of screen b, hydraulic diameter of screen dh,  number of packed screens per length  n, wire diameter of screen in meter dw,   wire mesh of 200 mesh size woven of SS 304 material."

      Have a look in the Fluent User's Guide under Cell zones and boundary conditions. There's a very good section on porous media, along with ways to calculate the coefficients.
