Annotation -
The course is focused on the structure of disordered multiphase solids, particularly porous solids and composite materials. Experimental methods of microstructure reconstruction and related mathematical models, and experimental determination of effective (macroscopic) properties are discussed. As an integral part of the course, mathematical models of transport phenomena in porous solids and in composite materials are studied in relation to the mathematical models of their microstructures.
