Heat and mass transfer in water-laden sandstone: Convective heating

Authors


Abstract

A theoretical model was developed to predict the heat and mass transfer phenomena in porous materials. A water-filled sandstone was heated in a convective oven and its water loss rates and temperature profiles were compared with theoretical results. In addition to local temperatures, moisture content, gas densities and pressure, this model also predicts the fluid flow pattern in the heated sample.
