In recent years possible applications of nanoporous materials in biophysics and biomedicine have become a topic of intense scientific interest. One of the main problems in this field is that of transport processes in inhomogeneous nanoporous media. Another one is the reproduction of the specific evolution of the liquid front profile, observed in one medium, in another medium. In this paper, we present a model which simulates twodimensional
liquid front propagation in inhomogeneous nanoporous media; we also propose a method to evaluate the parameters of the nanoporous medium required for reproduction of the given liquid front propagation.
Keywords: inhomogeneous nanoporous media, transport processes, liquid front propagation.
