Special Session 7
HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN POROUS MEDIA (SS7)
This Special Session will cover developments in the field of basic and applied research work on the physical and chemical aspects of heat and mass transfer phenomena in a porous medium domain, as well as related material properties and their measurements. The program of the session includes both theoretical and experimental presentations.

Topics of the special session include:

  • General: theory, mathematical models and numerical methods
  • Single and double diffusive transfer
  • Experimental methods (Measurement and Instrumentation)
  • Multiphase flow
  • Packed beds and reactors
  • Porous burners, heat exchangers, fuel cells
  • New porous materials and applications
  • Industrial applications
  • Papers in other relevant areas not listed above related to heat or/and mass
    transfer are also welcome
