RESISTANCE OF PERFORATED PLATES

Resistance coefficients for thinwalled perforated sheet or grid of


strips with sharp edged orifices
(according to Fried & Idelchik).

Conditions:
Range of sheet length to hole diameter ratio, 0 < l/Dh < 0.015
5
Reynolds number, Re > 10
Where:

for is the area of one orifice.

The resistance coefficient is given by:
