A paradox of heat conduction in porous media subject to lack of local thermal equilibrium

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Based on the traditional formulation of heat transfer in porous media it is demonstrated that Local Thermal Equilibrium (Lotheq) applies generally for any boundary conditions that are a combination of constant temperature and insulation. The resulting consequences raising an apparent paradox are being analyzed and discussed.
