Porous media coefficients and working fluid

    • HHK1992

      Hi all,

      I hope you all are doing well!
      I am wondering if the porous media coefficients will change if the working fluid changes.
      I have a tubular, U-shaped heat exchanger geometry where the working fluid is air.
      This model has been tested (experiments) in detail earlier, and its porous media coefficients have been estimated.
      Now I need to use the same heat exchanger geometry (for CFD), but the working fluid is replaced with water.
      Can I use the above porous coefficients for water?
      Kindly make your replies.
      Thanks in advance.

      I do not think do as pressure drop might change.
