Transport in porous media is applicable to a wide range of fields, including mechanical, chemical, environmental, and petroleum engineering, as well as geology. Porous media can be found naturally in rocks and sand beds, and also can be fabricated as in wicks and catalytic pellets. They are an essential component in high-technology devices such as fuel cells and heat pipes.

Continuity equation, momentum equation, energy equation,and conservation of species.
Multi-Fluid Model (MFM), multiphase mixture model (MMM) and comparison of MFM and MMM models.
One-region melting problem and two-region melting and solidification in porous media.
Inclined wall, and effect of surface tension.
Wedge or cone in porous medium, and inverted meniscus in porous media.
Nucleate boiling in a wicked surface, boiling in porous media heated from below and film boiling.
