This work is a continuation of Kou and Sun (36) where we present an efficient im- provement on the IMplicit Pressure Explicit Saturation (IMPES) method for two-phase immiscible fluid flow in porous media with different capillarity pressures. In the previous work, we present an implicit treatment of capillary pressure appearing in the pressure equation. A linear approx- imation of capillary function is used to couple the implicit saturation equation into the pressure equation that is solved… CONTINUE READING
