Liquid diffusion in porous media, with specific reference to the Athabasca tar sands Haliburton, James
The velocity of diffusion of the bitumin from sections of 'Tar Sands' has been measured in a specially designed diffusion cell. The solvent used in this case was benzene. The diffusion constant was found to be D = 2.39 x 10⁻⁵/ ft²/hr.
