Abstract: This paper presents a numerical investigation to estimate pressure drop in fluid flow through reticulated ideal and randomized porous structures. The 3D open-cell foam geometries are constructed using an in-house code along with the use of visualization tool kit (VTK) libraries. In this study, the ideal and randomized Kelvin structures with different porosities and pore densities are generated. These structures have been used to perform direct pore level simulations (DPLS) with the aid of a commercial CFD software. The simulation results are used to acquire the pressure drop across the structures. The pressure drop variation with respect to pore density, porosity, specific surface area, and randomization are analyzed and a pressure drop correlation for reticulated structures with new values of viscous and inertial coefficients is proposed. The validity of the proposed correlation is compared against the experimental and numerical data of the real structures that are available in the literature. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd
