About this book

Introduction

Convection in Porous Media, 4th Edition, provides a user-friendly introduction to the subject, covering a wide range of topics, such as fibrous insulation, geological strata, and catalytic reactors. The presentation is self-contained, requiring only routine mathematics and the basic elements of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The book will be of use not only to researchers and practicing engineers as a review and reference, but also to graduate students and others entering the field. The new edition features approximately 1,750 new references and covers current research in nanofluids, cellular porous materials, strong heterogeneity, pulsating flow, and more.

Recognized as the standard reference in the field

Includes a comprehensive, 250-page reference list

Cited over 2300 times to date in its various editions

Serves as an introduction for those entering the field and as a comprehensive reference for experienced researchers

Features new sections on nanofluids, carbon dioxide sequestration, and applications in geology
