Abstract

•Bubble population-balance approaches are used to simulate foam flow in porous media.•Strong and weak-foam states are separated by a relatively narrow transition zone.•The model with the minimum pressure gradient can simulate the two possibilities.•The minimum pressure gradient parameter can be tuned with the velocity scan data.•Remaining foam-model parameters can be estimated in the strong-foam state.
