Help on Porous Media

Hi all,

I am working on catalytic converter project, where I need to analyze the flow of gases across DOC and DPF using SWX Flow simulation. Can some one help me on following questions??

1)DPF and DOC are are honeycomb in structure, in solidworks do I need to design them with holes and define the porosity or can I create them as solid body(with no holes) and define the porosity?

2) To define the velocity flow Vs pressure drop curve, I have velocity flow as 0.205 m^3/s at 2739 Pa, can I assume it to be linear curve and other values as (0,0)?

3) Can I use permeability as Isotropic??

I appreciate your reply, Thanks in advance
