AGUILAR-MADERA, C.G.; VALDES-PARADA, F.J.; GOYEAU, B.  e  OCHOA-TAPIA, J.A.. Effective thermal properties at the fluid-porous medium interfacial region: role of the particle-particle contact. Rev. Mex. Ing. Quím [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.3, pp.375-386. ISSN 1665-2738.

In this work, we studied the role played by the particle-particle contact over the effective properties appearing in upscaled thermal models, for heat transport at the fluid-porous medium interfacial region under conductive regime. Using closure problems recently reported in the literature, the various effective properties were predicted as functions of position in rhe inter-region and of the degree of interconnection between solid particles. To this end, the associated closure problems were solved in unit cells containing squares connected by rectangular ramifications. It is shown that the existence of contact between particles yields results significantly different from those without contact. This may be an important source of error in modeling, specially when the solid (or the fluid) is highly conductive in comparison with the other phase.

Palavras-chave : upscaled thermal models; one-domain approach; effective properties; particle-particle contact.
