    In this paper, we present the analysis of recently introduced multiscale finite element methods that employ limited global information. In particular, these methods use single-phase flow information for the construction of more accurate solution for two-phase immiscible flow dynamics in...

    A mathematical model is developed to describe the flow of a two-phase heterogeneous medium over the surface of a porous body of arbitrary shape, through which there is filtration. The conservation equations of the mechanics of heterogeneous media are written in an orthogonal coordinate system...

    This paper reports a numerical study of coupling two-phase fluid flow in a free fluid region with two-phase Darcy flow in a homogeneous and anisotropic porous medium region. The model consists of coupled Cahn-Hilliard and Navier-Stokes equations in the free fluid region and the two-phase Darcy...

    Numerical simulation of two-phase flow in fractured porous media is an important topic in the subsurface flow, environmental problems, and petroleum reservoir engineering. The conventional model does not work well in many cases since it lacks the memory property of fracture media. In this paper,...

    A numerical method is proposed for the solution of a two-phase flow problem in petroleum reservoirs. The two-phase (water and oil) flow problem is governed by a pressure-velocity equation coupled to a saturation equation. The finite volume method with a semi-implicit formulation is used in the...

    Compressible granular materials are involved in many applications, some of them being related to energetic porous media. Gas permeation effects are important during their compaction stage, as well as their eventual chemical decomposition. Also, many situations involve porous media separated from...

    The effects of capillary forces on the propagation of two-phase, constant-flux gravity currents in a porous medium are studied analytically and numerically in an axisymmetric geometry. The fluid within a two-phase current generally only partially saturates the pore space it invades. For long,...
