Multi-Scale Approach for Multi-Phase Flow in Porous Media Using Stochastic Particles

Patrick Jenny, Manav Tyagi, Hamdi Tchelepi, Evan Lunati & Patrick Jenny
Particle methods have been investigated extensively for single-phase tracer transport in porous media. However, these conventional particle methods are unable to describe the correct non-linear macroscopic flux observed in immiscible multi- phase flow. Here we present an alternative particle approach. The methodology is based on transporting the particles according to statistical rules consistent with the small-scale physics in pores and throats. The input to the model describing the fluid particle dynamics includes the distribution functions...
