Other Effects of Rotation on Flow and Natural Convection in Porous Media

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Combined gravity and centrifugal buoyancy due to thermal gradients are introduced in this chapter, followed by onset of convection in a binary mixture saturating the rotating porous layer. Effects of lack of local thermal equilibrium or local thermal non-equilibrium are then discussed. The case when the porous medium is anisotropic and the resulting effects on convection are then introduced. Applications of rotating porous media to nanofluids and solidification of binary alloys conclude this chapter.
