# Airbag Fabric Porosity

Porosity of airbag material is modeled by the addition of a porosity card /LEAK/MAT to /MAT/LAW58 card.

The /LEAK/MAT specifies how the effective porous area of a
component having this material will vary as a function time or pressure. It is
determined by the value of `Ileakage`.

`Ileakage` =1:

`Ileakage` =2:

`Ileakage` =3:

`Ileakage` =4:

`Ileakage` =5:

$\text{\Delta}P=P/{P}_{ext}-1$

Where, ${\lambda}_{1}$ and ${\lambda}_{2}$ are the stretches in warp and weft directions and ${\alpha}_{12}$ is the angle between warp and weft directions.

`Ileakage` =6:

with ${r}_{s}=Are{a}_{n}/Are{a}_{0}$ and ${r}_{p}={P}_{ext}/P$ .

Parts with this material are considered porous, when referenced via a surface ID
using the /MONVOL/FVMBAG1
`surf_ID`_{ps} option.

`Iform`

_{ps}and has the following formulations:

`Iform`_{ps}= 1 ${\dot{m}}_{\mathit{out}}={A}_{\mathit{eff}}\sqrt{2P\rho}{Q}^{\frac{1}{\gamma}}\sqrt{\frac{\gamma}{\gamma -1}\left[1-{Q}^{\frac{\gamma -1}{\gamma}}\right]}$ (Isentropic - Wang Nefske)`Iform`_{ps}= 2 ${\dot{m}}_{\mathit{out}}={A}_{\mathit{eff}}\rho v(P-{P}_{\mathit{ext}})$Where,

`v`is the outflow gas velocity (Chemkin)`Iform`_{ps}= 3 ${\dot{m}}_{\mathit{out}}={A}_{\mathit{eff}}\sqrt{2\rho (P-{P}_{\mathit{ext}})}$ (Graefe)

`Iform`

_{ps}=2 option is normally used to represent fabric porosity. The outflow gas velocity as function of airbag overpressure comes from test data.
