Pressure drop using Darcy's law
 
For a gas flow through porous medium, I found the pressure drop using Darcy's law which happens to be of the order of 10 power 6.Isnt this a huge value?Thanks to all. Shankar.

Re: Pressure drop using Darcy's law
 
For tuebulent folw, inertial resistance is fairly high. What is your value, 10^6. Is it pressure drop, pascal ?

Sincerely, Jinwook

Yes, Pressure drop in Pa, but the flow is laminar.Or what is the criterion for Laminar or Turbulent flow in a porous medium.Thanks a lot. Shankar.
