 March 28, 2001, 01:30 how to obtain permeability factor of porous media? #1 sean Guest   Posts: n/a I am modeling a laminar gas flow through porous media. The fluent manual said that the porous media may reduces to Darcy's law, and I do not have to define the inertial resistance factor, C_2. However, I still do not know how to define the permeability, alph.

To obtain an estimation of the permeability tensor, you need to know the porosity of the porous media. Also, the unit vector direction is important. Mel

Do you mean that I can deduce the viscous resistance coefficient, which is the inverse of the permeability, from the porosity of the porous media in a vector direction? Fluent manual told me that porosity is the volume fraction of fluid within the porous region. sean
