Prediction of effective diffusivities in porous media using spatially periodic models

Calculations of effective diffusivities in three-dimensional, spatially periodic porous media are performed. For isotropic systems, it is found that, for a given porosity, the predicted value of the effective diffusivity matches experimental results for randomly-packed beds of spheres. Furthermore,...
