Title: Mechanics of Immiscible
Fluids in Porous Media
ISBN -13: 978-0-918334-83-1
Presentation of basic principles of the mechanics of two-phase fluid
systems in soils and porous rocks
Since publication of the first edition in 1977, pollution of groundwater aquifers by petroleum fluids and other non-aqueous liquids, such as chlorinated hydrocarbons, has become a major concern of investigators both nationally and internationally. Material presented in this text provides necessary background for students interested in the analysis of such problems.
Changes appearing in the third edition are made with the objective of providing a clearer presentation of basic principles. Major changes appear in Chapters 4, 5, and 6, which have been rewritten to provide new material and a more rigorous treatment of the theory for flow of two immiscible fluids.
An effort is made to make the subject of similarity understandable to students, a majority of whom have previously been exposed only briefly to dimensional analysis. The analysis presented in Chapter 6 derives criteria of similarity from equations governing simultaneous flow of two immiscible fluids. This procedure identifies similarity requirements more directly and in a more useful form than is possible from a dimensional analysis considering only the variables involved in two-phase flow.
