Chapter 11 Flow through porous media 11.1 Fluid friction in porous media 11.2 Two-fluid concurrent flow in porous media 11.3 Countercurrent flow in porous media 11.4 Filter theory 11.4.1 Surface filter 11.4.2 Depth filters 11.5 Fluidization Expected outcome Predict the pressure drop or friction loss of a flow through a packed column or other porous media and can describe the processes of fluidization and pneumatic transport.
Interconnected pores vs non-interconnected pores Closed pores- expanded polystyrene hot drink cups (Excellent barriers for fluid flow) No interconnected pores- impermeable to fluid flow Open porosity or interconnected pores- a pile of sand Permeable to fluid flow 1 2 F B.E. For porous medium 1) Friction term will be more significant 2) For porous medium flow V2 will not be equal to V1 but ∆V 2 will be negligible as compared with F 3) Displacement of air in case of porous medium? 2 2 V z g

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
