During this general reference of the sphere, theoretical and experimental methods to stream, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are thought of. assorted techniques are mentioned and contrasted with one another. the 1st technique is predicated at the classical equations of circulation and shipping, known as 'continuum models'. the second one procedure is predicated on smooth tools of statistical physics of disordered media; that's, on 'discrete models', that have turn into more and more well known over the last 15 years. The publication is exclusive in its scope, considering the fact that (1) there's presently no booklet that compares the 2 methods, and covers all vital points of porous media difficulties; and (2) contains dialogue of fractured rocks, which up to now has been taken care of as a separate subject.
parts of the booklet will be appropriate for a sophisticated undergraduate direction. The ebook should be perfect 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 a number of porous media difficulties.
