Isothermal Flow in Heterogeneous Porous Media

Peter Vadasz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Isothermal flow in roating porous media is shown to apply for conditions when the permeability of the porous medium is not constant, hence representing heterogeneous porous media. The demonstration of the possible existence of Taylor-Proudman columns in rotating porous media follows. Examples of secondary flows in a cross section perpendicular to the main flow direction are presented for a heterogeneous porous medium in a rotating square channel.
