Join Date: Feb 2011 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 8 Hello, can someone tell me how to calculate the "Resistance Loss Coefficient" and/or the "Linear Resistance Coefficient" for use in the CFX Porosity Settings Tab? Found nothing on the web unfortunately, so thanks a lot in advance! Last edited by drb764; March 13, 2011 at 11:20.

Join Date: Feb 2011 Posts: 6 Rep Power: 8 what i have are the laminar and turbulent permeabilities k1 and k2 which correspond to this equation: dP/L = mu/k1 * U + rho/k2 * U^2 Looks similar to the equation in Solver Theory Guide, but are these the values I need? Thank you so far!

Via experimental Data (V vs P) but the equation im getting from the graph is giving a negative (-) Value for permeability. Please Help me remedy this problem. Thank you very Much. -will
