A system of quasilinear degenerate parabolic equations arising in the modeling of diffusion in a fissured medium is studied. There is one such equation in the local cell coordinates at each point of the medium, and these are coupled through a similar equation in the global coordinates. It is shown that the initial boundary value problems are well posed in the appropriate spaces. 

On a micro-macro system arising in diffusion-reaction problems in porous media

In this note we describe a model of a reaction-diffusion process in a heterogeneous medium. The model resolves processes on the macro-scale as well as on the micro-scale by imposing a continuous

Distributed Microstructure Models of Porous Media

Laminar flow through fissured or otherwise highly inhomogeneous media leads to very singular initial-boundary-value problems for equations with rapidly oscillating coefficients. The limiting case (by

Strong solutions of semilinear matched microstruture models

The subject of this article is a matched microstructure model for Newtonian fluid flows in fractured porous media. This is a homogenized model which takes the form of two coupled parabolic

On a model of nonisothermal flow through fissured media

A model for nonisothermal flow in double–porosity medium is constructed by the technique of homogenization. The coupling between microscopic and macroscopic equations is discussed, with numerical

Microstructure models of porous media

Every attempt to exactly model laminar flow through highly inhomogeneous media, e.g., fissured or layered media, leads to very singular problems of partial differential equations with rapidly

Distributed systems of {PDE} in Hilbert space

Various models of mass transport and diffusion through heterogeneous media lead to systems of partial differential equations which share a rather general structure. Among the most successful of these

A stefan problem on a region and its boundary

This paper considers a system of equations consisting of a nonlinear evolution equation on an open set Ωin coupled to another nonlinear evolution equation on the boundary GΩ. Rather general

Diffusion models with microstructure

Models of diffusion are presented which recognize the local geometry of individual cells or storage sites and the exchange of flux on the micro-scale of these cells and it is indicated stronger existence-uniqueness results of “parabolic” type can be obtained directly.

Derivation of the double porosity model of single phase flow via homogenization theory

A general form of the double porosity model of single phase flow in a naturally fractured reservoir is derived from homogenization theory. The microscopic model consists of the usual equations

Kinetics of a Fixed Bed System for Solid Diffusion into Spherical Particles

A solution is presented to the general problem of the transient behavior of a linear fixed bed system where the rate of adsorption is determined by the combined effect of a liquid film and solid
