Porous media in CCM+
Hi all,

I would like to model a porous region. I calculate the necessary coefficients (inertial and viscous) using this formula:

(dp/dx) = - (Pi*V^2+Pv*V)

Is this formula OK?

Here V is the average inlet velocity. Resultantly I have,

Pi = 3.00E6 and
Pv = 1.00E5

Are these values reasonable?
