Kozeny Carman Equation Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

The Kozeny Carman equation (or Carman Kozeny equation) is a equation used in fluid dynamics to calculate pressure drop, clean bed head loss of solids.

Formula:

( ?p ⁄ L ) = (180?⁄ ?s2 × Dp2) × [(1 - ?)2 / ?3] × ?s

where,
? - is the viscosity of the fluid;
?s - is the sphericity of the particles in the packed bed;
Dp - is the diameter of the related spherical particle;
? - is the porosity of the bed;
?s - is the superficial or empty-tower velocity;
?p - is the pressure drop;
L - is the total height of the bed;
