huskerwong is on a distinguished road
I am running a CFD simulation on a heat sink in a air bench model. I am calculating the pressure impedance of certain flow rate. I found at high flow rate (8cfm+) the CFD results starts to deviate from the testing results up to about 20% at 17 cfm. I wonder if there is any empirical correction correlation to match the results.

Thanks guys.
