Flow and Transport in Porous Media and Fractured Rock: From by Muhammad Sahimi PDF

By Muhammad Sahimi

during this typical reference of the sphere, theoretical and experimental methods to circulation, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. diversified methods are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st technique relies at the classical equations of move and delivery, referred to as 'continuum models'. the second one method relies on sleek equipment of statistical physics of disordered media; that's, on 'discrete models', that have develop into more and more well known during the last 15 years. The booklet is exclusive in its scope, when you consider that (1) there's presently no publication that compares the 2 methods, and covers all very important points of porous media difficulties; and (2) contains dialogue of fractured rocks, which to date has been handled as a separate subject.

parts of the ebook will be appropriate for a complicated undergraduate path. The ebook may be perfect for graduate classes at the topic, and will be utilized by chemical, petroleum, civil, environmental engineers, and geologists, in addition to physicists, utilized physicist and allied scientists that take care of a number of porous media problems.
