Fluid and flow problems in porous media have attracted the attention of industrialists, engineers and scientists from varying disciplines, such as chemical, environmental, and mechanical engineering, geothermal physics and food science. There has been a increasing interest in heat and fluid flows through porous media, making this book a timely and appropriate resource. Each chapter is systematically detailed to be easily grasped by a research worker with basic knowledge of fluid mechanics, heat transfer and computational and experimental methods. At the same time, the readers will be informed of the most recent research literature in the field, giving it dual usage as both a post-grad text book and professional reference. Written by the recent directors of the NATO Advanced Study Institute session on 'Emerging Technologies and Techniques in Porous Media' (June 2003), this book is a timely and essential reference for scientists and engineers within a variety of fields.

The study of heat and fluid flow in fluid-saturated porous media is applicable in a very wide range of fields, with practical applications in modern industry and environmental areas, such as nuclear waste management, the construction of thermal insulators, geothermal power, grain storage and many more. The vast amount of theoretical and experimental work reported has attracted the attention of industrialists, engineers, applied mathematicians, chemical, civil, environmental, mechanical and nuclear engineers, physicists, food scientists, medical researchers, etc. This book covers the full range of theoretical, computational and experimental approaches to the subject, grouped into reviews of: fundamentals, stability, anisotropy, permeability and non-equilibrium, applications, and experimental porous media.

ABSTRACT: This dissertation investigates asymptotic behaviour of convection in a fluid saturated porous medium. We analyse the Darcy-Boussinesq system under perturbation of the Darcy-Prandtl number parameter. In very tightly packed media this parameter is of very large order and can be driven to infinity to yield the infinite Darcy-Prandtl number model. We show convergence of global attractors and invariant measures of the Darcy-Boussinesq system to that of the infinite Darcy-Prandtl number model with respect to perturbation of the Darcy-Prandtl number parameter.
