    A new molecular model, called the generalized hard-sphere, or GHS model, is introduced. This model contains, as a special case, the variable hard-sphere (VHS) model of Bird [Rarefied Gas Dynamics, edited by S. S. Fisher (AIAA, New York, 1981), Part 1, p. 239] and is capable of reproducing all of...

    Curves for cumulative recovery of driven fluid, as a function of pore volume injected of driving fluid, are computed using a previously developed Monte Carlo simulation of two-fluid flow through porous media at finite viscosity ratio. Both the linear channel and five-spot geometries are examined...

    Tracer dispersion is studied in a plane fracture geometry with a radial flow between closely spaced parallel walls with either two smooth surfaces or one smooth and one rough surface. An echo dispersion technique in which the fluid is first injected into the fracture during a time Tinv and then...

    We present molecular dynamics simulations of (H2O)8 and (H2O)20, paying particular attention to the possibility of solid-like/liquid-like coexistence. Four differently parametrized rigid molecule potentials are examined for (H2O)8; only the most promising is applied to (H2O)20. In every case, we...

    Gibbs ensemble Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations were used to study thermophysical and dynamical properties of Kihara fluids consisting of linear molecules with dipolar symmetry. Two models differing in the electrostatic part of the intermolecular potential have been considered. The...
