In this work, we present a numerical procedure that combines the mixed finite-element (MFE) and the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. This numerical scheme is used to solve the highly nonlinear coupled equations that describe the flow processes in homogeneous and heterogeneous media with mass transfer between the phases. The MFE method is used to approximate the phase velocity based on the pressure (more precisely average pressure) at the interface between the nodes. This approach conserves… CONTINUE READING
