Kozeny – Carman Equation
• Kozeny used bundle of capillary tubes model to derive an
expression for permeability in terms of a constant (c) and
the Pore size diameter (d)

• So how do we get the parameters we need for this equation?


MATHEMATICAL MODELING
A Layer of rock through
which water,gas or oil might
seep. This is similar to a
radial flow filter but on a
much larger scale . The
passage between the
particles is so small that the
velocity on them is small and
the flow is well and trully
laminar

MATHEMATICAL MODELING
For porous media composed of granules that are not spherical,
the average granule diameter, dg, can be taken as

where Ag and Vg are the surface area and the volume of the
granule, respectively.
Particle size and surface area
Generalizes the relationship between
grain size and grain surface area
