Pore-scale simulation of multiphase flow using lattice Boltzmann method : developments and applications
MetadataShow full item record
Multiphase flow is an important transport process that is found in many natural phenomena and engineering applications. In petroleum engineering, sub-surface multiphase flow takes place throughout the primary, secondary, and tertiary stages of recovery. Advances in high-performance computing and experimental techniques now allow us to study multiphase flow at the pore level to better understand pore-scale dynamic and its continuum-level descriptions. In this work, a parallelized multiphase flow simulator is developed using the lattice Boltzmann method with the color-gradient multiphase model. ...
