abstract

  • The classical description of porous media as a homogeneous equivalent fluid is presented, and its foundations on the homogenization method is introduced and applied to the numerical prediction model for a periodic porous medium composed by face centered cubic sphere packing on which measurements have been made. The results are compared with existing numerical results in the literature and with new and experimental data.
