Abstract

n this paper we present a rigorous derivation of the effective model for enhanced diffusion through a narrow and long 2D pore. The analysis uses a singular perturbation technique. The starting point is a local pore scale model describing the transport by convection and diffusion of a reactive solute. The solute particles undergo a first-order reaction at the pore surface. The transport and reaction parameters are such that we have large, dominant Peclet and Damkohler numbers with respect to the ratio of characteristic transversal and longitudinal lengths (the small parameter ). We give a rigorous mathematical justification of the effective behavior for small . Error estimates are presented in the energy norm as well as in $L^\infty$ and $L^1$ norms of the space variable. They guarantee the validity of the upscaled model. As a special case, we recover the well-known Taylor dispersion formula.
