Handbook of Porous Media, Third Edition offers a comprehensive overview of the latest theories on flow, transport, and heat-exchange processes in porous media. It also details sophisticated porous media models which can be used to improve the accuracy of modeling in a variety of practical applications.

Featuring contributions from leading experts in their respective fields, this book:

Presents the general characteristics and modeling of porous media, such as multiscale modeling of porous media, two-phase flow, compressible porous media, and dispersion in porous mediaAddresses the fundamental topics of transport in porous media, including theoretical models of transport, membrane transport phenomena, modeling transport properties, and transport in biomedical applicationsDescribes several important aspects of turbulence in porous media, including advances in modeling turbulence phenomena in heterogeneous porous mediaExplores heat transfer of nanofluids as well as thermal transport in porous media, including forced convection, double diffusive convection, high-heat flux applications, and thermal behavior of poroelastic mediaCovers geological applications in porous media, including modeling and experimental challenges related to oil fields, CO2 migration, groundwater flows, and velocity measurementsDiscusses relevant attributes of experimental work or numerical techniques whenever applicable

Paving the way for the establishment of multidisciplinary areas of research, Handbook of Porous Media, Third Edition further enhances cooperation between engineers and scientists by providing a valuable reference for addressing some of the most challenging issues in engineering and the hydrogeological, biological, and biomedical sciences.

Kambiz Vafai holds a B.Sc (highest honors) in mechanical engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA, and an M.Sc and Ph.D in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, USA. Widely published and highly decorated, he currently serves as Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Riverside, USA, where he started as the Presidential Chair. Before joining the University of California, Dr. Vafai was with The Ohio State University, Columbus, USA, where he won outstanding research awards in assistant, associate, and full professor categories. He is the fellow of several societies, has graduated numerous Ph.D and M.Sc students, and has supervised many post docs and visiting scholars. Dr. Vafai is the recipient of the ASME Classic Paper Award and the ASME Memorial Award, which are amongst the most prestigious awards in the field of heat transfer. He was given the International Society of Porous Media (InterPore) Highest Award, is the recipient of the 75th Anniversary Medal of the ASME Heat Transfer Division, and holds 12 US patents associated with electronic cooling and medical applications. He is one of the highest cited in his fields of research, using both ISI (Highly Cited Category) and Google Scholar metrics. His research interests include transport through porous media, multiphase transport, aircraft brakes, biomedical applications, microcantilever-based biosensors, biofilms, electronic cooling, macromolecule transport through arteries, cooling enhancement investigations, modeling of tissue and organs, natural convection in complex configurations, analysis of porous insulations, heat flux applications, free surface flows, flat-shaped heat pipes, thermal design and modeling, and feasibility, optimization, and parametric studies for various engineering applications and power electronics.
