An analytical formulation of Bergman–Milton conductivity bounds is used in a different way to obtain rigorous bounds on the real thermal conductivity of a fluid-saturated porous material. These bounds do not depend explicitly on the porosity, but rather on two formation factors—one associated with the pore space and the other with the solid frame.

    A brief review of electrical conductivity modelling of the porous medium is presented here to establish that, merely for the sake of applicability, the sound physico-mathematical model of Maxwell has been replaced by Archie's empirical one. The extension of clean sand models to shaly-sand models...

    Using pressure-pulsed chemical vapor infiltration (PCVI) method, TiN was partially infiltrated at 850 °C from gas system of TiCl4 (1%)–N2 (10%)–H2 into the highly porous carbon substrates prepared by the carbonization of cotton-wool, filter paper, and wood at 1,000 °C in Ar...

    We model porous media as two-dimensional networks of channels. As suspension flows through the network, particles clog channels. Assuming no flow through clogged channels, we determine an upper bound on the number of channels that clog and leave the network impervious. More precisely, the number...

    Using extensive Monte Carlo simulations, we study the growth of films by ballistic deposition of rodlike particles with various sizes on a one-dimensional substrate. Particles are deposited over an initially flat substrate, which leads to the formation of a porous film with rough surface. The...

    The hydromagnetic mixed convection flow through a porous medium in a pipe of varying radius in a uniform axial magnetic field is analyzed. The pipe wall is maintained at a prescribed nonuniform temperature. The governing equations are solved analytically to obtain the velocity, temperature, and...

    The drive toward increased semiconductor device densities and improved performance has set in motion the search for low-dielectric-constant materials. While introducing porosity in silica holds promise for reducing the dielectric constant, it remains elusive how to accomplish this without...
