This thesis presents, for the first time, a systematic investigation on flow through a porous obstruction, modelled by an array of emergent cylinders, across wide and relevant ranges of the flow blockage parameter, wake stability parameter and cylinder arrangement. Through integrating outcomes from laboratory experiments, direct numerical simulations and theory, mechanistic frameworks for describing and predicting flow through a porous obstruction are proposed.
