HEATING OF A LIQUID-SATURATED POROUS MEDIUM BY AN ACOUSTIC FIELDV. Sh. Shagapov, I. G. Khusainov, and A. G. Yumaguzina UDC 532.546:534.2 The function of a volume heat source for the process of heating of a porous medium by an acoustic field has been constructed. The dependences of the power of the heat source on the parameters of the wave field and the parameters determining the state of the porous medium have been analyzed.
