Node-centered finite volume discretizations for the numerical simulation of multiphase flow in heterogeneous porous media

Node-centered finite volume discretizations for the numerical simulation of multiphase flow in... Three node-centered finite volume discretizations for multiphase porous media flow are presented and compared. By combination of these methods two additional discretization methods are generated. The ability of these schemes to describe flows at textural interfaces of different geologic formations is investigated. It was found that models with nonzero-entry pressures for the capillary pressure-saturation relationship in conjunction with the Box discretization may give rise to spurious oscillations for flows around low permeable lenses. Furthermore, the applicability and sensitivity of the discretization methods with regard to the used computational grids is discussed. The schemes are used for the numerical study of two-phase flow in porous media with zones of different material properties. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Computational Geosciences Springer Journals
