Fluid transport in porous materials is commonly studied in geological samples (soil, sediments, etc.) or idealized systems, but the fluid flow through compacted granular materials, consisting of substantially strained granules, remains relatively unexplored. As a step toward filling this gap, we study a model of liquid transport in packings of deformable elastic shells using finite-element and lattice-Boltzmann methods. We find that the fluid flow abruptly vanishes as the porosity of the… Expand

An alternative method is proposed, which enables one to calculate T directly from the fluid velocity field, without the need of determining streamlines, which greatly simplifies determination of tortuosity in complex geometries, including those found in experiments or three-dimensional computer models.
