Abstract

An apparent paradox that appears in problems of heat conduction in porous media subject to lack of local thermal equilibrium (LaLotheq) that was introduced by Vadasz [Transport in Porous Media 59 (2005) 341-355] is reformulated and resolved. This apparent paradox relates to a combination of Dirichlet and insulation boundary conditions and leads the solution towards local thermal equilibrium (Lotheq).
