Modeling of flow and heat transfer in rotating porous media is introduced in this chapter. The governing equations are presented and transformed into dimensionless form in order, among others, to identifying conditions for neglecting terms in these equations. The classification of different types of rotating flows in porous media concludes the chapter.
