Stability and Wave Motion in Porous Media by Brian Straughan
This book describes several tractable theories for fluid flow in porous media. The important mathematical quations about structural stability and spatial decay are address. Thermal convection and stability of other flows in porous media are covered. A chapter is devoted to the problem of stability of flow in a fluid overlying a porous layer.
Nonlinear wave motion in porous media is analysed. In particular, waves in an elastic body with voids are investigated while acoustic waves in porous media are also analysed in some detail.
A chapter is enclosed on efficient numerical methods for solving eigenvalue problems which occur in stability problems for flows in porous media.
