How to do...plz give ur feed back...Adv thanx Cheers, Sam0508 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- for porous medium alpha and beta values , i guess you have experiment/test values for pressure drop & flow rate. if you have those values you can plot DelP/unit length and velocity. if you line fit the graph (Right click on the plot in excel --add a trendline) into a quadratic function, the values you have are those for inertial and viscous resistance. please make a note no inverse values are required as in FLUENT. you need to find out what kind of resistance you have isotropic/ orthotropic ...

Hi Sam, I already answered this elsewhere but, Star-CCM will not tell you the pressure drop characteristics of your porous media. You have to know this already beforehand.
