Natural Convection in Superposed Fluid-Porous Layers
Natural Convection in Composite Fluid-Porous Domains provides a timely overview of the current state of understanding on the phenomenon of convection in composite fluid-porous layers. Natural convection in horizontal fluid-porous layers has received renewed attention because of engineering problems such as post-accident cooling of nuclear reactors, contaminant transport in groundwater, and convection in fibrous insulation systems. Because applications of the problem span many scientific domains, the book serves as a valuable resource for a wide audience.
Provides overview of critical numerical modeling approaches Offers vital comparisons of experimental and numerical results Presents comprehensive overview of current literature Outlines current and future challenges
