Porous media modeling using Darcy-Forchheimer Law

I'm trying to model a fluid flow through a simple porous square block using the Darcy-Forchheimer law but can't figure out how to calculate the Inertial Resistance coefficient C2 using the proper properties/porosity since I do not have pressure drop data, anyone had a similar problem before?

Thanks in advance

You can find equations in Fluent User's Guide under Cell Zone conditions. It is well described there. Tell me if you do not have the guide.
