This lesson covers the concept of flow through porous media, focusing on the mechanisms of transport in such media. It delves into the flow equations, Darcy's law, and the Ergun equation. The lesson also explains the Cauchy momentum equation in convective form, Newton's second law, and the concept of substantial derivative. It further discusses the concept of viscous flow, the velocity field, and the acceleration in this field. The lesson also introduces the concept of Reynolds number and friction factor in the context of fluid mechanics and how these concepts can be applied to porous media. It concludes with a discussion on hydraulic diameter and its application in calculating Reynolds number.
