In this standard reference of the field, theoretical and experimental approaches to flow, hydrodynamic dispersion, and miscible displacements in porous media and fractured rock are considered. Two different approaches are discussed and contrasted with each other. The first approach is based on the classical equations of flow and transport, called ′continuum models′. The second approach is based on modern methods of statistical physics of disordered media; that is, on ′discrete models′, which have become increasingly popular over the past 20 years. The book is unique in its scope, since there is currently no book that compares the two approaches, and covers all important aspects of porous media problems; and includes discussion of fractured rocks, which so far has been treated as a separate subject.
