Transport coefficients in porous granular media

  • 28 Accesses


Transport coefficients are calculated as functions of porosity using an ordered model of granular porous media. We consider grain-spheres situated at the nodes of various crystalline lattices. The behavior of the transport coefficients at low porosity values is considered. A comparison with experimental data is performed.
