Multiphase flow in porous media occurs in many branches of engineering; an example is the exploitation of oil fields by in situ combustion. In such problems, increasingly complex phenomena develop during the flow: diffusion in the various phases, exchange of components between the phases, heat transfer and chemical reactions. The equations used in the mathematical formulation of the laws governing these flows must account for all such phenomena.
