Abstract

Employing a three-dimensional finite volume scheme, the dimensionless pressure drop coefficients of fibrous filter models are determined numerically and are compared with experimental results for a range of packing density and for three different fiber arrangements. Assuming periodicity in the direction of flow, the models approximate fibers contained within a filter layer as parallel cylinders, with square cross-section, with subsequent layers rotated through 90 degrees. Results show encouraging agreement with experimental data.
