Recent work on heat transfer in bidisperse porous media (BDPM) is surveyed. Topics covered are the measurement of permeability and thermal conductivity of BDPM, dispersion in BDPM, a new two-velocity two-temperature model for BDPM, and the application of that model to forced convection in a channel between two plane parallel walls. In this application the analysis leads to expressions for the Nusselt number as a function of properties of the BDPM, namely a conductivity ratio, a permeability… CONTINUE READING
