Analytical approach to the Darcy–Lapwood–Brinkman equation
Three exact solutions are obtained for flow through porous media, as governed by the Darcy–Lapwood–Brinkman model, for a given vorticity distribution. The resulting flow fields are identified as reversing flows; stagnation point flows; and flows over a porous flat plate with blowing or suction. Dependence of the flow Reynolds number on the permeability of the flow through the porous medium is illustrated.
