Fully developed forced convection in a parallel plate channel with a centered porous layer
In this study, fully developed heat and fluid flow in a parallel plate channel partially filled with porous layer is analyzed both analytically and numerically. The porous layer is located at the center of the channel and ...
The use of metal piece additives to enhance heat transfer rate through an unconsolidated adsorbent bed
The effects of metal piece additives on effective thermal conductivity and diffusivity of an unconsolidated adsorbent bed in which adsorbent is silica gel were investigated. The metal piece additives were copper, brass, ...
Thermal dispersion in porous media - A review on the experimental studies for packed beds
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2013)
Thermal dispersion is an important topic in the convective heat transfer in porous media. In order to determine the heat transfer in a packed bed, the effective thermal conductivity including both stagnant and dispersion ...
