A two-temperature model of hydrate-bearing rock



A two-temperature model for describing the temperature field of a heat source in a hydrate-bearing rock is proposed. For the water/ice phase, the enthalpy formulation of the Stefan problem is used. Numerical simulation is accomplished through the finite element method.
