"The object of this investigation is to obtain an expression whereby flow of air through woven cloth can be predicted with a reasonable degree of accuracy, in terms of the pressure drop across the screen, the density, the viscosity of the air flowing; these latter properties being functions of the pressure and temperature of the air.
The development of an expression from which to predict the relationship between the air flow through a screen and the pressure drop across it without resort to experimental procedure seems to the author to be worthwhile undertaking.
The chief aim of this investigation was to obtain an expression for air flow in terms of the pressure drop across the screen. Air has been used as the working medium when the experiments were conducted. But it could be applied to most compressible fluids, which makes the mathematical expression reasonably general"--Introduction, page 1.
