Symbolic Computation of Flows in Porous Medium with Cylindrical Geometry Using Maple
The study of the profiles of velocity and fluid flow rate in porous media with cylindrical geometries were made, using Maple, and the results were obtained in terms of the Bessel Functions. Some of them were the generalized forms of the Haugen-Poiseuille Law. The results could be applied to synthetic media such as zeolites. Only newtonian fluids were considered, but it’s possible to consider non newtonian fluids in the future investigations.
