Abstract:

This work is composed of a set of investigations related to the single and multiphase transport processes in packed beds, and the behavior of sensible and latent heat storage packed beds. The main objective of this work was to analyze different aspects of the applications of packed beds by considering a set of problems which were designed to provide physical insight for a number of outstanding points related to transport phenomena in porous media as well as different packed bed energy storage systems including sensible heat storage and latent heat storage ones.
