Over the last three decades, advances in modeling flow, heat, and mass transfer through a porous medium have dramatically transformed engineering applications. Comprehensive and cohesive, Handbook of Porous Media, Second Edition presents a compilation of research related to heat and mass transfer including the development of practical applications for analysis and design of engineering devices and systems involving porous media. See what's new in the Second Edition:Recent studies related to current and future challenges and developments in fundamental aspects of porous mediaCombustion and heat transfer in inert porous mediaModeling bioconvection in porous mediaInfluence of vibrations on the onset of the thermo-convectionModeling porous media impairment by particlesModeling liquid composites molding processesParameter identification within a porous medium using genetic algorithmsViscous dissipationForced and double diffusive convection in porous mediaTurbulent flowDispersionParticle migration and deposition in porous mediaDynamic modeling of convective transport through porous mediaCompletely revised, updated, and reviewed by experts in the field, each chapter includes, whenever applicable, a discussion of the pertinent aspects of experimental work or numerical techniques. Generously illustrated with 262 black and white illustrations, 15 tables, and 1,865 equations, the book is a rigorous and thorough working reference.show more
