AN EMPIRICAL CORRELATION FOR ISOTHERMAL PARALLEL PLATE CHANNEL COMPLETELY FILLED WITH POROUS MEDIA

ABSTRACT
This study reports a simple empirical correlation for friction factor and Nusselt number for laminar, steady state, hydraulically and thermally fully developed flow in isothermal parallel plate channel completely filled with porous media. The study is carried out using a finite difference numerical analysis. The Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer model is used to model the flow inside the porous media. The empirical correlations are developed to relate friction factor and Nusselt number to Darcy and Forchheimer coefficient.
