Abstract: An axiomatic foundation for models of multi-component multiphase porous ow appearing ubiquitously in the engineering literature is developed. This unifies and extends various disparate and empirical formulations appearing in the literature. Constitutive restrictions are derived from an appropriate statement of the second law of thermodynamics, and the corresponding dissipation inequalities establish stability of solutions. The convexity properties and variational structure of these models are elucidated.
