A geometric model for an homogeneous and isotropic porous medium composed of spherical particles is proposed. This model requires a minimum of geometric simplifications and lends itself to the study of hydrodynamic as well as diffusive flow processes, permitting in each application a mathematically rigorous and fully predictive analysis leading to mathematical representations of the respective flow parameters.
This particular investigation seeks to evaluate, and to provide physical insight into, diffusive flow processes occurring within an homogeneous swarm of spherical particles.
