Default porousSimpleFoam - "d" and "f"

Hi All,

I took a look at the porousSimpleFoam tutorials and the way we specify porousZones is to state which method we want to use (Darcy vs. Power Law).

For Darcy, how do we get the values for "d" and "f" if we only have an idea about the pressure drop coefficient? What is the "area" or "length" that we need to divide by?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks very much.
