Essentials of Multiphase Flow and Transport in Porous Media

John Wiley & Sons, 2008 M09 26 - 272 páginas
Learn the fundamental concepts that underlie the physics of multiphase flow and transport in porous media with the information in Essentials of Multiphase Flow in Porous Media, which demonstrates the mathematical-physical ways to express and address multiphase flow problems. Find a logical, step-by-step introduction to everything from the simple concepts to the advanced equations useful for addressing real-world problems like infiltration, groundwater contamination, and movement of non-aqueous phase liquids. Discover and apply the governing equations for application to these and other problems in light of the physics that influence system behavior.
