Porous materials

  • Wicking in Porous Materialsby Reza Masoodi; Krishna M. Pillai

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 159.95

    A comprehensive presentation of wicking models developed in academia and industry, Wicking in Porous Materials: Traditional and Modern Modeling Approaches contains some of the most important approaches and methods available, from the traditional Washburn-type models to the latest Lattice-Boltzmann approaches developed during the last few years.... more...

  • Transport Phenomena in Porous Mediaby Yasuaki Ichikawa; A.P.S. Selvadurai

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    This monograph presents an integrated perspective of the wide range of phenomena and processes applicable to the study of transport of species in porous materials. In order to formulate the entire range of porous media and their uses, this book gives the basics of continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, seepage and consolidation and diffusion, including... more...

  • Transport Processes in Porous Mediaby Frank A. Coutelieris; J.M.P.Q. Delgado

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    The subject of this book is to study the porous media and the transport processes occur there. As a first step, the authors discuss several techniques for artificial representation of porous. Afterwards, they describe the single and multi phase flows in simplistic and complex porous structures in terms of macroscopic and microscopic equations as well... more...

  • Flow and Transport in Porous Media and Fractured Rockby Muhammad Sahimi

    Wiley 2011; US$ 210.00

    In this standard reference of the field, theoretical and experimental approaches to flow, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are considered. Two different approaches are discussed and contrasted with each other. The first approach is based on the classical equations of flow and transport, called 'continuum... more...

  • Stability and Wave Motion in Porous Mediaby Brian Straughan

    Springer 2008; US$ 129.00

    This book describes several tractable theories for fluid flow in porous media. The important mathematical quations about structural stability and spatial decay are address. Thermal convection and stability of other flows in porous media are covered. A chapter is devoted to the problem of stability of flow in a fluid overlying a porous layer. Nonlinear... more...

  • Flow and Transport in Fractured Porous Mediaby Peter Dietrich; Rainer Helmig; Martin Sauter

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 239.00

    This book addresses the characterization of flow and transport in porous fractured media from experimental and modeling perspectives. The volume explores porous media problems, from the origin of the present natural porous structures, to their characterization, and various flow and transport phenomena that exist within the porous media. Examples are... more...

  • Computer Modelling of Microporous Materialsby C.R.A. Catlow; Berend Smit; R.A. van Santen

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 230.00

    Microporous materials, including both zeolites and aluminophosphates are amongst the most fascinating classes of materials, with wide ranging important applications in catalysis, gas separation and ion exchange. The breadth of the field has, moreover, been extended in the last ten years by the discovery of the versatile and exciting ranges of mesoporous... more...

  • Microporous Mediaby Freddy Romm

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 262.00

    Microporous Media presents new developments from nearly a decade of advancement. Written by a leading researcher in the field, this reference provides examples of the most original scientific and technical research impacting studies in porosity and microporosity, and illustrates methods to forecast the properties of microporous structures for improved... more...

  • Stochastic Dynamicsby Don Kulasiri; Wynand Verwoerd

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 145.00

    Most of the natural and biological phenomena such as solute transport in porous media exhibit variability which can not be modeled by using deterministic approaches. There is evidence in natural phenomena to suggest that some of the observations can not be explained by using the models which give deterministic solutions. Stochastic processes have a... more...

  • The Thermophysics of Porous Mediaby T.J.T. Spanos

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 164.95

    Models for the mechanical behavior of porous media introduced more than 50 years ago are still relied upon today, but more recent work shows that, in some cases, they may violate the laws of thermodynamics. In The Thermophysics of Porous Media, the author shows that physical consistency requires a unique description of dynamic processes that involve... more...
