Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“The book by Nield and Bejan provides a fundamental and comprehensive presentation of mathematical and physical theories of many classical and new (modern) areas of flow and transport in porous media … . The book is excellently written and easily readable. … extremely useful to a wide range of specialists working in the area of flow in porous media, such as university students, graduate students, design engineers, physicists, chemical engineers, and also to researchers interested in the mathematical theory of flow in porous media.” (Ioan Pop, zbMATH, Vol. 1268, 2013)
