The Microstructural Effects of Randomly Generated Porous Media on Interfacial Convective Heat Transfer
Communication avec acte
Heat and momentum transfer in a random generated porous media is investigated. 6 different random porous media are generated using a Monte–Carlo (MC) procedure. The continuity, momentum and energy equations are solved for a row of cylinders with a square cross-section (i.e.rods) representing the entire domain of a random porous medium. The microstructure properties of the random porous media such as the mean nearest neighbor distance and the standard deviations of Voronoi areas, nearest neighbor distance and neighbor orientation for each generated random porous medium are obtained and compared with each other. The velocity and temperature fields in the porous media are shown via isotherms and streamlines. The rods in the domain are classified into three groups as blocker, active and passive rods based on our observations from the temperature field and the variations of the Nusselt number of each rod. The preliminary obtained results show that it may be possible to predict the interfacial heat transfer coefficient in a random porous medium based on some microstructure properties.

However, the basic mechanisms explaining the oil recovery ...
Conférence invitéeAHMADI-SENICHAULT, Azita; LASSEUX, Didier; LETELLIER, Samuel (2007)Flow and transport in fibrous media are encountered in a wide variety of domains ranging from biotechnology to filtration in chemical engineering.

What can be learnt about dispersivity from transport experiments in unsaturated double-porosity soils? Communication avec acteTRAN NGOC, T.D.; AHMADI-SENICHAULT, Azita; BERTIN, Henri (2017)Dispersivity is assumed to be an intrinsic property which characterizes the heterogeneity scale of porous media. When the medium is unsaturated by two fluid phases (water and air), dispersivity depends strongly on the ...
On the stationary macroscopic inertial effects for one phase flow in ordered and disordered porous media Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureLASSEUX, Didier; ABBASIAN ARANI, Ali Akbar; AHMADI-SENICHAULT, Azita (American Institute of Physics, 2011)We report on the controversial dependence of the inertial correction to Darcy’s law upon the filtration velocity (or Reynolds number) for one-phase Newtonian incompressible flow in model porous media. Our analysis is ...
