Abstract

A relation of diffusion and seepage is discussed on the basis of mass conservation law for porous media saturated with a multi-component solution. Note that both phenomena have independently treated in the classical theory of porous materials. In the seepage problem we shed light on a physical implication of seepage velocity. In the diffusion problem we show sorption can be introduced on concepts of a source term, a distribution factor or an equation of adsorption isotherm.
