J. Heat Transfer 135(6), 061201 (May 16, 2013) (10 pages) Paper No: HT-12-1457; doi: 10.1115/1.4023567 History: Received August 23, 2012; Revised December 11, 2012

This note deals with three main themes. The first is a discussion of the early literature on convection in porous media. The second is a brief overview of current analytical modeling of single-phase convection in saturated porous media and in composite fluid/porous-medium domains. The third is a brief discussion of some pertinent recent studies involving nanofluids, cellular porous materials, bidisperse and tridisperse porous media.
