In this paper Lattice Boltzmann equation method is used to simulate non- Darcy flow in porous media. Two-dimensional in-line and staggered arrangements of uniform cylinders have been considered. The results of a comprehensive computational evaluation are reported: the range of validity of Darcy-Forchheimer equation is investigated and correlations for macroscopic transport properties are presented (i.e., for the permeability and the inertial parameter). Our investigation covers both no-slip and the slip-flow regimes.
