I am trying to understand what is the base hardness value for the McLaury's Erosion model.
I understand the default is for sand-steel, with the A = 1.997e-7 for Fluent.
A = 1559*BH^-0.59 (when V is in ft/s)
but I am also seeing some define A as 1.95*10^-5 *BH^-0.59 (for m/s) and as 2.5*10^-6*BH^-0.59 (for ft/s).
When I am using the A to solve for BH, the BH value does not make sense at all.
Can someone please help me on what am I missing or misinterpretting?

However this still doesn't answer my question, as I am trying to figure out what is the default hardness for the McLaury's Erosion model, for the sand-steel.
The A is given as 1.997e-07 as default, how does this translate into a hardness value in terms of BH for steel.
I do believe the BH for the base model from McLaury's early publications is 210 or 290.
January 25, 2022 at 11:02 amRobAnsys EmployeeA is a function of Bh - as covered in the manual https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/Secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v221/en/flu_th/flu_th_sec_discrete_erosion_mclaury.html which would suggest that F is a very small number.
January 26, 2022 at 12:02 amyyz5373SubscriberHello Rob So what is the value for F for the base sand-steel case.
As A=F*BH^k, where A = 1.997e-07, k is -0.59 for carbon steel.
what would the empirical constant for F be for the default case?
I try to find it through the manual too, but was not able to find that value for F, since the base default case's BH is not provided in the manual either.
January 26, 2022 at 12:21 pmRobAnsys EmployeeI suspect it's in the reference in the paper, but should be in the documentation. I'll raise it this side, but won't be able to comment until DOC is revised.
