The mechanics of transport and ow in a random porous medium are addressed in this paper. The hydraulic properties of the porous medium are modeled as spatial random processes. The heterogeneity of the medium is modeled as a superposition of scales of heterogeneity that are statistically uncorrelated. The stochastic process making up a hydraulic property is thus represented as a linear combination of normalized deterministic shapes multiplied by a set of uncorrelated random variables.
