About this book

Convection in Porous Media, 4th Edition, provides a user-friendly introduction to the subject, covering a wide range of topics, such as fibrous insulation, geological strata, and catalytic reactors. The presentation is self-contained, requiring only routine mathematics and the basic elements of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The book will be of use not only to researchers and practicing engineers as a review and reference, but also to graduate students and others entering the field. The new edition features approximately 1,750 new references and covers current research in nanofluids, cellular porous materials, strong heterogeneity, pulsating flow, and more.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“The book by Nield and Bejan provides a fundamental and comprehensive presentation of mathematical and physical theories of many classical and new (modern) areas of flow and transport in porous media … . The book is excellently written and easily readable. … extremely useful to a wide range of specialists working in the area of flow in porous media, such as university students, graduate students, design engineers, physicists, chemical engineers, and also to researchers interested in the mathematical theory of flow in porous media.” (Ioan Pop, zbMATH, Vol. 1268, 2013)
