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 103 the relation log Fv = 0.49 + 0.90 log Re′ is shown to be a highly effective representation of all available data.
