The Kozeny-Carman equation is a relation used in the field of fluid dynamics to calculate the pressure drop of a fluid flowing through a packed bed of solids. The equation is only valid for laminar flow.
Additional recommended knowledge
The equation is given as:
where Δp is the pressure drop, L is the total height of the bed, is the superficial or "empty-tower" velocity, μ is the viscosity of the fluid, ε is the porosity of the bed, Φs is the sphericity of the particles in the packed bed, and Dp is the diameter of the related spherical particle.
