 May 12, 2004, 22:50 viscous resistance coefficients in Porous media #1 choyong Guest   Posts: n/a I have a question about setting resistance coefficients in a porous media problem. Based on my experiment, I knew some info on pressure drop, so I calculated permeability(alpha called in Fluent 6.1). In Fluent 6.1 pannel, is it correct that i put 1/alpha as a resistance coefficients? The value is 8682372. (alpha=0.000000115). I got a converged solution, but I am not sure whether I did it right. Last question is about what the physical/superficial velocity is in perous media. I read a old manual(6.0), which did not explain well about physical velocity. Which is recommeded to set a porous media problem? Million thanks in advance. cho

I am looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours

 September 14, 2013, 06:18 hello guys, #5 New Member   Anonymous Join Date: Jun 2013 Posts: 9 Rep Power: 4 I have trouble finding the alpha and beta values for modelling plasma (blood ) flow through a porous media which acts as the filter. All i have is the porosoity report and material properties. Is it possible to calculate the inertial and viscous co-efficients ?

If you have some experiment data of pressure drop, you can fit them by a quadratic function: dP = a*v^2 + b*v + c. (v is superfical velocity) The inertial coeff. = 2*a/density; viscous coeff. = b/dynamic viscosity. A CFD free user likes this.

Thank you in advance. -will

hi
can u say to me what is your source?for this note?

I'm not sure about the in quantities's equation.
