By Prof. Muhammad Sahimi(auth.)

During this regular reference of the sector, theoretical and experimental techniques to circulation, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. varied ways are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st technique relies at the classical equations of circulate and shipping, known as 'continuum models'. the second one technique relies on sleek tools of statistical physics of disordered media; that's, on 'discrete models', that have develop into more and more renowned during the last 15 years. The ebook is exclusive in its scope, seeing that (1) there's at present no publication that compares the 2 techniques, and covers all vital features of porous media difficulties; and (2) contains dialogue of fractured rocks, which to date has been taken care of as a separate subject.

parts of the ebook will be compatible for a complicated undergraduate path. The e-book should be excellent 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 quite a few porous media problems.Content:
