Transport by advection and diffusion revisited

, : Transport by advection and diffusion revisited. Vadose zone journal VZJ 2(4)

Mass transport by advection and diffusion is involved in nearly all branches of science, but various scientific disciplines define the two mechanisms of transport differently. Models widely accepted for combining transport resulting from advection and diffusion are shown to be inconsistent with experimental observations. Experimental observations are cited to show that the barycentric velocity of a solution is not synonymous with velocity as determined by the Navier-Stokes equation of fluid motion. The physics of advection and diffusion is analyzed, and requirements for combining advection and diffusion are presented. Advection is defined here as transport responding to a pressure gradient or body force. Molecular diffusion is defined as transport responding to concentration or thermal gradients. Diffusion represents an average velocity component of molecules of a particular constituent relative to a fixed frame of reference external to the solution, rather than to the mean velocity of all constituents in a solution as defined in current literature. Advection and diffusion contribute independently to the total transport.

A poor appreciation of the role of surgery in the management of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) may result in some patients being denied access to appropriate care. While surgery is often considered as an option of last resort, there are instanc...

Defective interfering (DI) particles are byproducts of virus replication that potently enhance dendritic cell (DC) maturation by virus infection. DI particles have been reported for many different viruses and are strong inducers of type I IFNs. Th...

Tooth enamel biomineralization is mediated by enamel proteins synthesized by ameloblast cells. Two classes of proteins have been described: enamelins and amelogenins. In lower vertebrates the absence of amelogenins is believed to give rise to apri...
