Abstract

Latticework of metallic fibers. Five such media are investigated, four among which share the characteristic that there are no free fiber ends within the medium. Operating conditions %of the experiments extend over a wide range of velocities greater than those for Darcy flow, but permeabilities deduced from the data are applicable to the Darcy regime. It is shown that for all the investigated media, axial pressure gradient is representable as the sum of two terms, one linear in velocity (viscous contribution) and the second quadratic in velocity (inertia contribution. )
