# Mass Transfer in a Porous Medium: Multicomponent and Multiphase Flows

Chapter

## Abstract

The term “mass transfer” is used here in a specialized sense, namely the transport of a substance that is involved as a component (constituent, species) in a fluid mixture. An example is the transport of salt in saline water. As we shall see below, convective mass transfer is analogous to convective heat transfer.
