Vugs are small to medium-sized cavities inside rock, which have significant effects on the fluid flow in rock. Moreover, the presence of vugs may have non-trivial impacts on the geomechanical behavior of rock. How to quantify and analyze such effects is still an opening problem. To this end, we derive a macroscopic poroelastic model for a single-phase viscous fluid flow through a deformable vuggy porous medium. At first, a vuggy porous medium is divided into two parts: the porous matrix and…

Homogenization of a Darcy–Stokes system modeling vuggy porous media
We derive a macroscopic model for single-phase, incompressible, viscous fluid flow in a porous medium with small cavities called vugs. We model the vuggy medium on the microscopic scale using Stokes
Numerical Calculation of Equivalent Permeability Tensor for Fractured Vuggy Porous Media Based on Homogenization Theory
Based on two-scale homogenization theory, an equivalent macroscopic Darcy's law on coarse scale isained from fine-scale discrete fracture-vug network model to model the realistic fluid flow in fractured vuggy porous medium on fine scale.

This work develops and analyzes a mixed finite element method for the solution of an elliptic system modeling a porous medium with large cavities, called vugs, and proves optimal global first-order L2 convergence of the velocity and pressure, as well as the velocity gradient in the Stokes domain.
Extension of Biot theory to the problem of saturated microporous elastic media with isolated cracks or/and vugs
The purpose of this paper is to develop the macroscopic model of hydro‐mechanical coupling for the case of a porous medium containing isolated cracks or/and vugs. In the development, we apply the

A Lagrange multiplier method for a Stokes–Biot fluid–poroelastic structure interaction model
A finite element computational model for solving the coupled problem arising in the interaction between a free fluid and a fluid in a poroelastic medium and the applicability of the method to modeling physical phenomena and the robustness of the model with respect to its parameters is studied.
