Fluids Through Inclined Granular Media
Keywords:Granules, Isothermal, Adiabatic, Photosphere, Darcyâ€™s equation, Taylorâ€™s series expansion
A theoretical analysis of inclined fluids through granular media was carried out. Modified SDarcyâ€™s equation and its approximate solution showed that for the isothermal case, increase in the argument and permeability of the granules result in a corresponding increase in the pressure exerted on the photosphere while increase in porosity and viscosity brings about a decrease in the pressure. For the adiabatic fluid case, the pressure is not affected as a result of increase in the angle of the granules. The same physical results occur in both the isothermal fluid case and that of the adiabatic fluid case as a result of increase in viscosity, porosity and permeability of the granules in the pressure exerted on the photosphere.
