This book presents an account of theories of ?ow in porous media which have proved tractable to analysis and computation. In particular, the t- ories of Darcy, Brinkman, and Forchheimer are presented and analysed in detail. In addition, we study the theory of voids in an elastic material due to J. Nunziato and S. Cowin. The range of validity of each theory is outlined and the mathematical properties are considered. The questions of structural stability, where the stability of the model itself is under cons- eration, and spatial stability are investigated. We believe this is the ?rst such account of these topics in book form. Throughout, we include several new results not published elsewhere. Temporal stability studies of a variety of problems are included, indic- ingpracticalapplicationsofeach.Bothlinearinstabilityanalysisandglobal nonlinear stability thresholds are presented where possible. The mundane, importantproblemofstabilityof?owinasituationwhereaporousmedium adjoins a clear ?uid is also investigated in some detail. In particular, the chapter dealing with this problem contains some new material only p- lished here. Since stability properties inevitably end up requiring to solve a multi-parameter eigenvalue problem by computational means, a separate chapter is devoted to this topic. Contemporary methods for solving such eigenvalue problems are presented in some detail.
