Pulsating Flow through Porous Media
The present work investigates the response of a porous media to an unsteady forcing resulting from the superposition of an harmonic component to a mean one. The analysis is carried out both in terms of global parameters and local fields obtained processing data from numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations at pore level performed with a spectrally accurate multi-domain algorithm.
