Fluid in porous media flows through tortuous paths. When the fluid velocities are large enough, this tortuosity and inertial effects cause suspended particles to collide with pore walls. After each collision, a particle loses momentum and needs to be accelerated again by hydrodynamic forces. As a result, the average velocity of suspended particles may be(More)
We model filters as two-dimensional networks of channels. As a suspension (fluid with particles) flows through the filter, particles clog channels. We assume that there is no flow through clogged channels. In this paper, we compute a sharp upper bound on the number of channels that can clog before fluid can no longer flow through the filter. 1.(More)
