The paper presents a continuation of the program on porous media heat-transfer and flow-friction behavior previously covered in References [2b] and [3b]. All the previous results of interest to the designer on woven-screen matrices and crossed-rod matrices of a random configuration are summarized here. In addition, new design results for the regular in-line and regular staggered crossed-rod-matrix configurations are reported. Matrices of the type considered here may find application as heat-transfer surface geometries for nuclear-reactor fuel elements, for electrical resistance heaters and for periodic-flow-type heat exchangers used for gas-turbine regenerators, and some air-conditioning applications.
