 May 20, 2004, 09:24 porous media resistance coefficients #1 Thiyagarajan Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links hi all, iam analysing an airfilter.(porousmedium).for the medium,i calculated resistance coefficients .the permeability given 24 CFM, that i converted into 8584e10 1/sq.meter for viscous coeff.problem is 3D and flow is in x direction. my questions, is my coeff. value is reasonable?. i gave resistance co efficients only in x direction,should i give in other directions? if i need to give,can i use the same value ? thanks for any suggestions. regards Thiyaga.

If you have x-direction flow only, you should can specify the y and z direction permeabilities to an order of magnitude or two higher than your x-direction value.

 May 21, 2004, 00:08 Re: porous media resistance coefficients #3 Thiyagarajan Guest   Posts: n/a thank you. as you said, the permeability values in y&z are higher than the value of X, the resistance coefficients in y&z should be lower than the value in x direction, is it so?. what about inertial coefficient, the same way can be used?. looking forward to your suggestion.... regards Thiyaga.

I am looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours

Sir,
I am modelling porous medium.
I know velocity=5.6m/s
pressure=5690 pa
discrete phase model
thicknes of porous medium=0.15mm
porosity =0.95

now how to calculate K and c2?
