This paper describes the numerical code ANTHYC developed at G.3S for modeling of transport phenomena in porous media. Using a method derived from the Finite Volume method, the code forces the local conservation of transfer and mechanical processes and leads to a very good accuracy. The theoretical development of the method is described, and a number of examples are given.
