The pressure drop can be obtained from cfd. The values for velocity can be arbitrarily chosen say for ex. 0 to 20 m/s (even more if you want more points) Plot Dp/L vs velocity based on above formula and examine the curve how it looks like. If it is a straight line then use only dp/l=viscous resistance. If it is a quadratic equation use (dp/l =viscousr resistance + inertial resistance). Find K and C2 with these curves. Hope this helps . cheers Nelly
Hi Nelly,

I did everything you specified above I only have two clarifications.

1.) I sometime get a negative k=permeability because when I plot DeltaP vs Velocity it gives me an equation with a -Bx. My question is, can I use this (-) Value of k as input? if not please give me a hint on how to remedy this problem.

2.) To get C2 and k you have to use L=Thickness. My question is what thickness to use?, the thickness of the screen which you got the experimental data from ,(P vs V), or the representative porous media's thickness used in the solver (I some times use thick Porous media for ease of meshing)

Thanks.

Whenever I select the system as laminar, the flow is laminar and even when I select it to be turbulent, the flow is laminar. So, what are the factors we need to consider (it is very complicated to consider all points) to simulate the random arrangement of the void fraction? Further which parameters are normally selected and avoided while considering the porous media.
