About the Authors
  • An invaluable reference for graduate students and academic researchers, this book introduces the basic terminology, methods and theory of the physics of flow in porous media. Geometric concepts, such as percolation and fractals, are explained and simple simulations are created, providing readers with both the knowledge and the analytical tools to deal with real experiments. It covers the basic hydrodynamics of porous media and how complexity emerges from it, as well as establishing key connections between hydrodynamics and statistical physics. Covering current concepts and their uses, this book is of interest to applied physicists and computational/theoretical Earth scientists and engineers seeking a rigorous theoretical treatment of this topic. Physics of Flow in Porous Media fills a gap in the literature by providing a physics-based approach to a field that is mostly dominated by engineering approaches.

    • Provides a basic introduction to the hydrodynamics of porous media alongside an advanced introduction to porous media flow that connects to current research
    • Establishes the connection between basic fluid flow theory and complex pattern formation, introducing readers to useful concepts
    • Includes both analytical and numerical tools to deal with real experiments to promote student/researcher capability in running and analysing fluid dynamics simulations
