Pore-Scale Flow

This non-conventional model of porous media flow utilizes creeping (Stokes) flow in the interstices of a porous media. The model comes from the pore-scale flow experiments conducted by Arturo Keller, Maria Auset, and Sanya Sirivithayapakorn of the University of California, Santa Barbara. ... Read More

Flow in a Fractured Reservoir

This model shows how to set up a simulation of flow through a fractured reservoir. The reservoir includes a discrete fracture network (DFN), where the fractures have a randomized distribution of position, size, orientation and aperture. The model uses the Discrete Fracture Network Add ... Read More

Geothermal Doublet

This is one of the two models from the blog post about heat transfer in the subsurface: Coupling Heat Transfer with Subsurface Porous Media Flow Note: Poroelasticity is not included here. Read More

Phase Change

This example demonstrates how to model a phase change and predict its impact on a heat transfer analysis. When a material changes phase, for instance from solid to liquid, energy is added to the solid. Instead of creating a temperature rise, the energy alters the material’s molecular ... Read More

Two-Phase Flow in Column

The first model describes the simultaneous flow of two immiscible fluids in porous media - here air displaces water in a multi-step inlet pressure experiment. We solve for the pressure and the degree saturation for the air and water within a representative volume and so track saturation ... Read More

CO2 Storage in a Geologic Formation

This example simulates the underground storage of CO2 in a part of the Johansen formation off the coast of Norway. The CO2 is injected using an injection well at a rate of 15 kg/s over a period of 25 years, after which the well is closed. The model is used to compute the spreading of CO2 ... Read More

Forchheimer Flow

This is a tutorial model of the coupling between flow of a fluid in an open channel and a porous block attached to one of the channel walls. The flow is described by the Navier-Stokes equation in the free region and a Forchheimer-corrected version of the Brinkman equations in the porous ... Read More

Biot Poroelasticity

The Poroelasticity interface couples Darcy's law and solid mechanics to assess deformation of porous media that results from fluid withdrawals. The model builds on top of the Terzaghi Compaction example. Results from Terzaghi compaction and Biot poroelasticity analyses are compared to ... Read More

Two-Phase Flow over a Low Permeable Lens

This example demonstrate two-phase flow in a porous medium which contains a low permeable lens. The heavier phase infiltrates the porous medium, so the low permeable lens is infiltrated only when a critical saturation at the outside is reached. Read More

Reservoir with Horizontal Wells

This example models a oil reservoir with two horizontal wells. The reservoir contains two phases, water and oil. Oil is recovered by injecting water through the bottom well, so the oil production rate and the water-oil production ratio over time are computed. Read More
