About this book


The present volume offers a state-of-the-art report on the various recent scientific developments in the Theory of Porous Media (TPM) comprehending the basic theoretical concepts in continuum mechanics on porous and multiphasic materials as well as the wide range of experimental and numerical applications. Following this, the volume does not only address the sophisticated reader but also the interested beginner in the area of Porous Media by presenting a collection of articles. These articles written by experts in the field concern the fundamental approaches to multiphasic and porous materials as well as various applications to engineering problems.
