Abstract

This work presents a relatively new approach designed for modelling reacting flows in porous media by using conditional expectations. Similar methods, aimed at obtaining, closing and using conditional expectations in reacting fluid flows, were previously developed for and successfully used in turbulent combustion (e.g. conditional moment closure or CMC) are now generalised and adapted to perform simulations of reacting flows in porous media. Different versions of the porous models PCMC (porous CMC) variations of PDCMC (distance conditioned moment closure) have been proposed and are now summarised in this work. These approaches utilise single-conditioned expectations and the closure of the equations is obtained by using diffusion approximations conventional in CMC. Fractal properties of a porous medium can be used to evaluate the coefficients of the conditional equations. A new approach for investigating transport phenomena in irregularly-connected pore networks and obtaining corresponding transport coefficients has also been suggested. This approach combines a generalised effective medium approximation with a macroscopic continuum model and allows us to explicitly obtain analytical expressions for the transport coefficients for both unconditional and conditional models. As demonstrated, the proposed general approach is capable of emulating various regimes of reactive transport in porous media, while permitting accurate reproduction of the experimental results.
