A Powerful Book The book provides a powerful grasp to engineers or scientists working on porous media models.
Nor does any other text develop and use such a diversity of tools for their study. Porous media are ubiquitous throughout nature and in many modern technologies. No other text covers porous media on scales ranging from angstroms to miles. This text is an outgrowth of a two-semester graduate course on multiscale porous media offered to students in applied math, physics, chemistry, engineering (civil, chemical, mechanical, agricultural), and environmental and soil science. Because of their omnipresent nature, porous media are studied to one degree or another in almost all branches of science and engineering. The text is largely based on Dr Cushmans' groups efforts to build a rational approach to studying porous media over a hierarchy of spatial and temporal scales. The text is designed
