Forchheimer Flow

Application ID: 4413


This is a tutorial model of the coupling between flow of a fluid in an open channel and a porous block attached to one of the channel walls. The flow is described by the Navier-Stokes equation in the free region and a Forchheimer-corrected version of the Brinkman equations in the porous region.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
