i´m have some problems to set up the proper permability and resistance loss coefficient of my porous media. Actually i found different answers about how these coefficient are expressed, having different solutions with both of them.
You have to input a POROSITY, PERMEABILITY COEFFICIENT and RESISTANCE LOSS COEFFICIENT.
The porosity is simply the % VOID of the region.
The Permeability Coeff governs low speed viscous losses. If Erguns equation is to be adopted, this term can be calculated as:
Kperm = [(Dp^2)*(epsilon^3)*(S^2)]/[150*(1-epsilon)^2]
Dp = equivalent spherical diameter of particle
= 6*(Volume of Particle/Surface Area of Particle)
S = sphrecity (measure of how spherical) = ((pi^1/3)*(6Vp)^2/3)/Ap
The Resistance Loss term governs inertia effects and can be calculated as:
KLoss = 2[1.75*(1-epsilon)/(S*Dp*(epsilon^3)]
and the other is an aproximation which says:
Res.Loss COeff= 2*(0.55/k^0.5)* porosity^2
where 0.55/k^0.5 = form coefficient
both ways have as a result very different values of Kperm and Kloss.
could someone help me? has each Kpermeability necesarily an associated and unique Rloss?
