Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The literature on buoyant flow in a saturated porous medium is reviewed for heat transfer from embedded surfaces and flow with mass transfer in packed beds. Research areas covered are experimental studies of buoyancy-driven convection from a horizontal plate, determination of stagnant and effective thermal conductivity of a saturated porous medium, natural convection heat transfer on a vertical plate embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium, and models of dispersion in packed beds.
