Inertial Resistance and Viscous Resistance Data
I am modeling the grille and radiator in the under hood of a car using Ansys FLUENT on Ansys Workbench. I modeled grille and radiator as porous media (In addition radiator is modeled as heat exchanger). The user inputs required for porous media are inertial resistance factor and viscous resistance factor. For that I need to have experimental data of Velocity and Pressure Drop across the porous component (Grille and Radiator in this case)

Could anyone recommend values for the
1. Inertial Resistance Factor
2. Viscous resistance Factor
Provide any experimental data for Velocity Vs Pressure Drop for the two components.

Any help in this regard is appreciated.

hi, have you find answer ? i want to know about the method of finding inertial and viscous resistance for modeling vegetation as porous media.if you have some material or link please share with me .
