Using a porous medium to emulate a perforated plate
A porous medium can be used to emulate a perforated plate in FloEFD.
The holes are removed and as a substitute a porous material is assigned to the plate. The simpler geometry lowers the amount of required mesh cells which reduces the computational time.
There are two ways to calculate the porous properties of the plate.
