In this work, mass dispersion tensors were calculated within an infinite porous medium formed by a spatially periodic array of longitudinally-displaced cylindrical rods. For the sake of simplicity, just one unit-cell, together with periodic boundary conditions for mass and momentum equations, and Neumann conditions for the mass concentration, was used to represent such medium. The numerical methodology herein employed is based on the control volume approach. Turbulence is assumed to exist within the fluid phase. High and low Reynolds k-e models were used to model such non-linear effects. The flow equations at the pore-scale were numerically solved using the SIMPLE method applied to a non-orthogonal boundary-fitted coordinate system. Integrated mass fraction results were compared with existing data in the literature.
