Defining porosity using Power law

  • Porosity could be also modeled by the so called Power law
  • For each cellZone the following is defined in the file system/fvOptions :
            type powerLaw;
                  C0 0.5;
                  C1 2.0;
  • The source term is


    so the resistance is – in contrast to the Darcy law – isotropic, not directional.
