Secondary flow in laminar regimes induced by curvature of the pipes also enhanced by pulsating flow has been frequently studied due to its applications, particularly in mixing and heat transfer processes [1-4]. In presence of porous media, it is also shown that the pore-scale features may play a critical role in micro-scale flow behaviour, also governing the macroscopic transport regimes...
