This book introduces the reader into the field of the physics of processes occurring in porous media. It targets Master and PhD students who need to gain fundamental understanding the impact of confinement on transport and phase change processes. The book gives brief overviews of topics like thermodynamics, capillarity and fluid mechanics in order to launch the reader smoothly into the realm of porous media. In-depth discussions are given of phase change phenomena in porous media, single phase flow, unsaturated flow and multiphase flow. In order to make the topics concrete the book contains numerous example calculations. Further, as much experimental data as possible is plugged in to give the reader the ability to quantify phenomena.

Table of Contents

About the Author(s)

Henk Huinink, Eindhoven University of Technology
Hendrik Pieter (Henk) Huinink is a physical chemist and assistant professor at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, in the group Transport in Permeable Media (TPM). He graduated at the Wageningen University in 1998, with a PhD degree in soft matter physics. He joined the applied physics department of TUE, where he started to work on modeling of transport in porous media and thin films. He became more and more involved in NMR imaging studies on transport phenomenon.
