Measurements of the resistance to flow through packed beds of inert spheres have been reported by a number of authors through relations expressing the coefficient of drag as a function of Reynolds number. A meta-analysis of the data using improved statistical methods is undertaken to aggregate the available experimental results. For Reynolds number in excess of 10exp 3 the relation logFv 0.49 0.90 logRe is shown to be a highly effective representation of all available data.
