The influence of porous media microstructure on filtration

Abstract:

We investigate how a filter media microstructure influences filtration performance. We derive a theory that generalizes classical multiscale models for regular structures to account for filter media with more realistic microstructures, comprising random microstructures with polydisperse unidirectional fibres. Our multiscale model accounts for the fluid flow and contaminant transport at the microscale (over which the media structure is fully resolved) and allows us to obtain macroscopic proper...
