The dual goal of the analysis is the development of a microstructural geometric and micro-flow model for the investigation of membrane characteristics as well as for use in numerical simulation of macro-flow phenomena in membrane technology- Membrane structures suggest a composition of different porous regimes of vastly different microstructures and some basic types of porous media are therefore discussed, emphasizing their different influences on a traversing fluid. Incorporation of the different models into a general momentum transport equation, fit for numerical computation of membrane systems, is discussed.
