Pore-scale network models provide insights into two-fluid porous-media flow
Their ability to simulate laboratory experiments allows continuum-
scale constitutive relationships to be derived from these models.
fluid-fluid interfaces are modeled explicitly, quantities that are difficult or
impossible to measure, such as interfacial areas, can be calculated within the
This allows new constitutive relationships to be investigated, and
theoretical conjectures to be tested.
In one such test, a functional dependence
between interfacial area, capillary pressure, and saturation is observed, but the
extended interfacial area f...
