Abstract

We now turn our attention to the results that constitute the core of modern research on convective heat and mass transfer through porous media. Our objective is not only to organize the compact presentation of these results, but also to explain their origin. We want to show the student how to anticipate these results and the results for related problems. This is why we begin with methodology. We emphasize the freedom that educators and researchers have in choosing methods to solve problems, present the results, and put results into practice.
