Advances in Transport Phenomena in Porous Media by Yehuda Bachmat, Jacob Bear (auth.), Jacob Bear, M. Yavuz

By Yehuda Bachmat, Jacob Bear (auth.), Jacob Bear, M. Yavuz Corapcioglu (eds.)

This quantity includes the lectures awarded on the NATO complicated research INSTITUTE that happened at Newark, Delaware, U. S. A. , July 14-23, 1985. the target of this assembly was once to provide and speak about chosen subject matters linked to shipping phenomena in porous media. via their very nature, porous media and phenomena of delivery of in depth amounts that happen in them, are very complicated. the forged matrix could be inflexible, or deformable (elastically, or following another constitutive relation), the void area will be occupied by means of a number of fluid levels. each one fluid part could be composed of multiple part, with a number of the elements able to interacting between themselves and/or with the forged matrix. The delivery approach can be isothermal or non-isothermal, without or with part alterations. Porous medium domain names within which broad amounts, resembling mass of a fluid section, portion of a fluid part, or warmth of the porous medium as an entire, are being transported happen within the perform in various disciplines.

The Death and Life of American Journalism: The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again

American journalism is collapsing as newspapers and magazines fail and ratings of newshounds are laid off around the nation. traditional knowledge says the web is accountable, yet veteran reporters and media critics Robert W. McChesney and John Nichols disagree. The hindrance of yank journalism predates the good Recession and electronic media growth.

The Lolita Effect: The Media Sexualization of Young Girls and What We Can Do About It

Pop culture---and the advertisements that surrounds it---teaches younger boys and girls 5 myths approximately intercourse and sexuality:

-Girls don't pick out boys, boys opt for girls--but basically attractive women
-There's just one form of sexy--slender, curvy, white good looks
-Girls may still paintings to be that kind of horny
-The more youthful a woman is, the sexier she is
-Sexual violence may be sizzling
Together, those 5 myths make up the Lolita impact, the mass media tendencies that paintings to undermine girls' self-confidence, that condone woman objectification, and that tacitly foster intercourse crimes. yet picking those myths and breaking them down might help ladies discover ways to realize innovative and fit sexuality and guard themselves from degrading media rules and sexual vulnerability. within the Lolita influence, Dr. M. Gigi Durham deals step forward innovations for empowering women to make fit judgements approximately their very own sexuality.

We now turn to the evaluation of the surface integral over (Sas) in Eq.

Although it has been recognized for some time that transport through porous media depends on the microstructure of the pore space, the macroscopic effects cannot, as yet, be interpret ted in terms of simple cause and effect relationships due to the microscopic events. Correlating a change in one variable with a change in another is a long way from demonstrating that one is the cause of the other. Because of such difficulties, studies on simple model systems are particularly valuable in clarifying our understanding.
