Advances in Modeling of Heat and Mass Transfer in Porous Materials

Description

Porous media are used across a huge array of applied sciences and engineering disciplines. Biologists and geoscientists consider their role in natural processes. Chemists and materials scientists seek to understand their fundamental properties and technological applications. Civil and environmental engineers rely upon their characteristics to provide new solutions for better living. Meanwhile, chemical, food, petroleum, gas, and nuclear industries depend upon their special properties to enable safe and efficient processing.

Due to their importance and prevalence, the investigation of transport phenomena in porous materials has emerged as a separate field of study. Transport phenomena, understood from the microscopic scale upward, cover the general theories behind flow and transport in porous media and form the basis of deterministic and stochastic models that describe them. Research in the area commonly assesses the role of porous media in single and multiphase fluid flow, solid particle motions, heat conduction and convection, electrical and acoustical transport, and their biomolecular and chemical composition.

This special issue welcomes high quality submissions that, through theory and/or simulation, seek to advance the understanding of heat and mass transfer in porous materials, especially as a function of their structure and properties. High quality research articles that include elements of experimental study are welcomed, as well as review articles that explore and assess the various aspects of transport in porous media.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Heat and mass transfer in porous materials
  • Numerical modeling of transport in porous media
  • Multiscale and multifield coupling theory in porous media
  • Gas transport in micro- and nanoporous media
  • Non-Darcian, non-Newtonian, nonisothermal, and nonlinear theories in natural rocks
  • Fluid flow and transfer in dual porous media
  • Fractal-based approach to heat and mass transfer in porous materials
  • Porous transport in resources, energy, and chemical and bioscience fields
  • Heat and mass transfer influence on porous materials durability (cultural heritage)
  • Fluid flow through deformative porous media coupled with dynamic stressing
  • Other topics on the transport phenomena in porous media
