Single-phase flow through a porous media revisited

  title={Single-phase flow through a porous media revisited},
  author={Francisco Mandujano Carlos M'alaga},
  journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics},
The problem of the flow trough a porous media is formulated in terms of a pressure equation, based on arguments of volume conservation which state the mechanical equilibrium between the solid and the fluid phases. In the resulting governing equations, the conservation of mass is replaced by a transport-diffusion equation for the pressure field. When the deformation of the solid matrix is negligible, the pressure equation can be approximated by a non-linear diffusion equation. The behavior of…

Computational methods for multiphase flows in porous media

The Black Oil model is applied as a guide for welling modeling of fractured porous media and nonisothermal flow as well as for solution of linear systems.

The effect of weak inertia on flow through a porous medium

Using the theory of homogenization we examine the correction to Darcy's law due to weak convective inertia of the pore fluid. General formulae are derived for all constitutive coefficients that can

Flow in porous media I: A theoretical derivation of Darcy's law

Stokes flow through a rigid porous medium is analyzed in terms of the method of volume averaging. The traditional averaging procedure leads to an equation of motion and a continuity equation

Oscillatory Darcy Flow in Porous Media

We investigate the flow in a porous medium subjected to an oscillatory (sinusoidal) pressure gradient. Direct numerical simulation (DNS) has been performed to benchmark the analytical solutions of


The system of unsteady Darcy's equations considered here models the time-dependent flow of an incompressible fluid such as water in a rigid porous medium. We propose a discretization of this problem

On the Representation of the Porosity‐Pressure Relationship in General Subsurface Flow Codes

The governing equations for subsurface flow codes in a deformable porous media are derived from the balance of fluid mass and Darcy's equation. One class of these codes, which we call general

On the derivation of the Forchheimer equation by means of the averaging theorem

The averaging theorem is applied to the microscopic momentum equation to obtain the macroscopic flow equation. By examining some very simple tube models of flow in porous media, it is demonstrated

A direct sequential method has been developed to simulate isothermal compositional systems and is highly suitable for simulating various isothermal enhanced recovery schemes such as miscible gas displacement or chemical flooding.
