Hauptseminar Porous Media SS 2021/Introduction to porous media
- Introduction to porous media
- Alexander Schlaich
In this introductory lecture I will give an overview on the general concepts and questions that concern porous media science. In detail, I will cover the following points:
What are porous materials?
- fundamental questions
- confinement effects
- Molecular concepts of transport, statistical mechanics
- Coupling of thermodynamics and transport in nano-porous media
- from pore to pore-network to continuum scale
- Typical continuum descriptions (Darcy, Brinkmann, ...)
