Fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media have continuously received great attention in recent years due to its wide applications in engineering. There are various forms of porous media, such as carbonate rock, percolation cluster, packed particles, metal foams, etc., which are either widely distributed in the natural environment or carefully designed for industrial functions. This book covers a broad state-of-the-art knowledge of fluid flow and thermal transport in porous media, and it will be interesting and useful for both academic and industrial communities.
