The continuum-scale electrokinetic porous-media flow and excess charge redistribution equations are uncoupled using eigenvalue decomposition. The uncoupling results in a pair of independent diffusion equations for “intermediate” potentials subject to modified material properties and boundary conditions. The fluid pressure and electrostatic potential are then found by recombining the solutions to the two intermediate uncoupled problems in a matrix-vector multiplication. Expressions for the… 


Electroosmotic Phenomena in Porous Media
A general theory of electroosmotic phenomena in model porous media possessing spatially periodic structure is developed. General expressions for the electric conductivity, permeability, and coupling
Theory of transient streaming potentials associated with axial-symmetric flow in unconfined aquifers
SUMMARY We present a semi-analytical solution for the transient streaming potential response of an unconfined aquifer to continuous constant rate pumping. We assume that flow occurs without leakage
Theory of transient streaming potentials in coupled unconfined aquifer‐unsaturated zone flow to a well
A semianalytical solution is presented for transient streaming potentials associated with flow to a pumping well in an unconfined aquifer, taking into account the effect of flow in the unsaturated
Analytical decoupling of poroelasticity equations for acoustic-wave propagation and attenuation in a porous medium containing two immiscible fluids
Poroelasticity theory has become an effective and accurate approach to analyzing the intricate mechanical behavior of a porous medium containing two immiscible fluids, a system encountered in many

The macroscopic governing equations controlling the coupled electromagnetics and acoustics of porous media are derived here from first principles in the form of Maxwell's equations coupled to Biot's equations with coupling occurring in the flux-force relations.
Experimental Measurement of Frequency-Dependent Permeability and Streaming Potential of Sandstones
Hydraulic flow, electrical flow and the passage of elastic waves through porous media are all linked by electrokinetic processes. In its simplest form, the passage of elastic waves through the porous
Frequency-dependent streaming potential of porous media - Part 1: Experimental approaches and apparatus design
Electrokinetic phenomena link fluid flow and electrical flow in porous and fractured media such that a hydraulic flow will generate an electrical current and vice versa. Such a link is likely to be
