About This Special Issue
The concept of porous media is used in many areas of applied science and engineering, such as applied mechanics, chemistry, biology, material science, food science, geosciences, and chemical, petroleum, gas, civil, environmental, and nuclear engineering. Transport phenomena in porous materials, including single phase and multiphase fluid flow through porous media, heat conduction and convection in porous media, biomolecule and chemical composition as well as solid particle motions in porous media, and electrical and acoustical transport in porous media, are a subject of most common interest and have emerged as a separate field of study. Porous media transport phenomena, understood from the microscopic scale upward, cover the general theories behind flow and transport in porous media and form the basis for deterministic and stochastic models that describe them.

Aims and Scope:

1.Heat and mass transfer in porous materials
2.Applications of fractal geometry in modeling of transport in porous media
3.Multiscale and multifield coupling theory in porous media
4.Gas transport in micro- and nanoporous media
5.Non-Darcian, non-Newtonian, nonisothermal, and nonlinear theories in natural rocks
6.Flow and transfer in dual porous media
7.Porous transport in resources, energy, environment, and chemical and bioscience fields
8.Other topics on the transport phenomena in porous media

    Abstract: Transient pressure analysis has been considered as a robust method to identify the flow behaviors, estimate reservoir parameters and hydraulic fracturing parameters. Compared with conventional clastic reservoirs, complex pore systems in fractured–vuggy carbonate reservoirs are posing significant research challenges. Although pressure transient anal... Show More
