Thermal Energy Transportation in Porous Media

Course Description

Thermal energy transportation in porous media is of interest in a number of engineering applications such as water purification and energy storage systems. As an introduction course to the topic of fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media, this course will introduce modeling approaches for heat and fluid flow in porous media. These models are applicable to a wide variety of media, including sand, soil, tube bundle heat exchangers, and open cell metal foams, which have gained attention in recent years as potentially excellent candidates for meeting the high thermal energy dissipation demands in energy storage and electronics industry.
