Experimental data on the viscous force exerted by a flowing fluid on a dense swarm of particles

  • H. Verschoor


Experimental evidence is presented to support Brinkman's modification of Darcy's law for fluid flow through porous media. The results of the measurements performed are in close accordance with the prediction from theory.
