Definitions for Permeation
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word Permeation
permeation, pervasion, suffusion(noun)
the process of permeating or infusing something with a substance
mutual penetration; diffusion of each through the other
The movement of a fluid through a porous or permeable solid.
The spreading of something (especially something malignant) through the body via blood vessels etc.
the act of permeating, passing through, or spreading throughout, the pores or interstices of any substance
In physics and engineering, permeation is the penetration of a permeate through a solid. It is directly related to the concentration gradient of the permeate, a material's intrinsic permeability, and the materials' Mass diffusivity. Permeation is modeled by equations such as Fick's laws of diffusion, and can be measured using tools such as a minipermeameter.
