This book is a scholarly presentation of work done by the author at the Russian Academy of Science, in the Oil and Gas Research Institute of Moscow. The goals of the book are to show some new results in the field of modeling transport through highly heterogeneous media, based on the homogenization theory and to illustrate the homogenization method as a powerful tool to deduce new models in continuum mechanics.
The book is divided into five chapters including One Phase...
