Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Internal Flows Through Porous Media

Chapter 7 draws attention to forced convection heat transfer in internal flows through porous media. The flow is assumed to be confined within parallel walls subjected to uniform heat flux and immersed in a porous medium saturated with an elastic fluid of constant viscosity, thereby helping to isolate the effect of elasticity. The expression for the Nusselt number for the elastic fluid is found to be the same as that for Newtonian fluids in its general form. However, the expression for the controlling term inside the equation is different, thereby exemplifying the effect of elasticity.
