Study reveals new physics of how fluids flow in porous media

August 24, 2016

Key flow mechanisms, crucial to carbon sequestration and fuel-cell operation, have been visualized.

Lab experiments carried out by an MIT and Oxford University team provide detailed information about how a liquid moves through spaces in a porous material, revealing the key role of a characteristic called wettability. Image courtesy of the researchers
