Transport Phenomena in Porous Media and Fractal Geometry

Description

The concept of porous media is used in many areas of applied science and engineering, such as applied mechanics, chemistry, biology, material science, food science, geosciences, and chemical, petroleum, gas, civil, environmental, and nuclear engineering. Transport phenomena in porous media, including single phase and multiphase fluid flow through porous media, heat conduction and convection in porous media, biomolecule and chemical composition as well as solid particle motions in porous media, and electrical and acoustical transport in porous media, are a subject of most common interest and have emerged as a separate field of study. Porous media transport phenomena, understood from the microscopic scale upward, cover the general theories behind flow and transport in porous media and form the basis for deterministic and stochastic models that describe them. However, the microstructures and transport mechanisms of porous media are very complex in nature. Fortunately, fractal geometry has been shown to have potential in the analysis of flow and transport properties in porous media.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will explore as many aspects as possible of transport in porous media and fractal theory.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Heat and mass transfer in porous media
  • Applications of fractal geometry in analysis 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 porous media
  • Porous transport in resources, energy, environment, and chemical and bioscience fields
  • Other topics on the transport phenomena in porous media
