Provides readers a state-of-the-art understanding of the theory of transport in porous media
Introduction.- Fundamentals of Flow, Heat, Mass and Charge Transfer through Porous Media.- Mesoscale Interactions of Transport Phenomena in Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells.- Porous Media Application: Electrochemical Systems.- Porous Media Applications: Biological Systems.- Oscillatory Flow in a Mesh-type Regenerator.- Geological Systems, Methane Recovery and CO2 sequestration.- Closure.
This book is an ensemble of six major chapters, an introduction, and a closure on modeling transport phenomena in porous media with applications. Two of the six chapters explain the underlying theories, whereas the rest focus on new applications. Porous media transport is essentially a multi-scale process. Accordingly, the related theory described in the second and third chapters covers both continuum- and meso-scale phenomena. Examining the continuum formulation imparts rigor to the empirical porous media models, while the mesoscopic model focuses on the physical processes within the pores. Porous media models are discussed in the context of a few important engineering applications. These include biomedical problems, gas hydrate reservoirs, regenerators, and fuel cells. The discussion reveals the strengths and weaknesses of existing models as well as future research directions.
