Two-Phase Flow

Chapter
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 6)

Abstract

In practical applications, the problem of modeling two-phase flow behavior is of greatest importance. In petroleum engineering the so-called enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process is based on displacing a fluid (oil) by another one (gas or water, for example). In soil science, water and contaminant or water and air are involved in many underground flows in the unsaturated zone. Domestic gas, before delivery, is kept in natural reservoirs and moved by water and a cushion gas.
