Numerical modeling of non-Newtonian fluid flow in fractures and porous media

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1463562

Non-Newtonian fluids having Bingham or power-law rheology are common in many applications within drilling and reservoir engineering. Examples of such fluids are drilling muds, foams, heavy oil, hydraulic-fracturing and other stimulation fluids, and cement slurries. Despite the importance of non-Newt...

Fully implicit simulation of polymer flooding with MRST

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1455747

The present work describes a fully implicit simulator for polymer injection implemented in the free, open-source MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST). Polymer injection is one of the widely used enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques and complicated physical process is involved, which makes ac...

Numerical Modelling of Non-Newtonian Fluid Flow in Fractures and Porous Media

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1388988

We consider two types of non-Newtonian rheology: truncated power-law fluid and Bingham fluid. For the two types of non-Newtonian rheology, we construct relations between the superficial fluid velocity and the pressure gradient in fractures and porous media. The above formulations are implemented wit...

Multiscale simulation of polymer flooding with shear effects

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1342469

Multiscale methods have been developed as an alternative approach to upscaling and to accelerate reservoir simulation. The key idea of all these methods is to construct a set of prolongation operators that map between unknowns associated with cells in a fine grid holding petrophysical properties and...

An Experimenting Field Approach for the Numerical Solution of Multiphase Flow in Porous Media

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1308601

In this work, we apply the experimenting pressure field technique to the problem of the flow of two or more immiscible phases in porous media. In this technique, a set of predefined pressure fields are introduced to the governing partial differential equations. This implies that the velocity vector ...

Numerical Investigation on the Effects of a Precursor Wetting Film on the Displacement of Two Immiscible Phases Along a Channel

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1307262

A set of numerical experiments has been conducted to study the effect of a precursor fluid layer on the motion of two phase system in a channel. This system is characterized by coupled Cahn-Hillard and Navier-Stokes system together with slip boundary conditions. The solution of the governing equatio...
