Acoustic Streaming in a Porous Media

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering book series (LNME)


Srivastava shown in Srivastava (Powder Technol 320:108–113, 2017, Lect Notes Mech Eng 19:149–155) that the velocity of the steady flow outside the boundary layer was independent of viscosity but was dependent on permeability. Through this paper, we tried presenting practical implication of the theory developed by Srivastava (Powder Technol 320:108–113, 2017, Lect Notes Mech Eng 19:149–155). It was found that the flow may be described using the non-dimensional parameters. Results were plotted for the volumetric flow rate analysis of the problem.
