Dispersion coefficient with the displacement of a gas from a porous medium by a gas

  • 19 Accesses


The article gives the dependence of the dispersion coefficient on the Péclet number, obtained with the analysis of experimental data on the displacement of a gas by a gas from a porous medium of varying permeability.
