Non-Newtonian fluid flow in a porous medium

Anita Uscilowska

Vol. 3 (2008), No. 6, 1151–1159

This paper presents the properties of non-Newtonian fluid flow in a porous medium. A numerical study on Brinkman flow is considered. It is assumed that the flow is isothermal. The governing equations are included. The steady-state problem is considered. The problem is nonlinear, described by coupled equations and boundary conditions. To solve the problem, a method based on the method of fundamental solutions for solving nonlinear boundary problems is proposed. The numerical experiment is performed and results are discussed.
