Oral 20 Minutes MS 1.33: Physico-Chemical Fluid Dynamics of Enhanced Oil Recovery Parallel 2-C


Stéphane Zaleski (Institut Jean Le Rond d'Alembert)


We describe recent advances in pore scale dynamics direct numerical simulation. The Volume of Fluid method associaed with well-balanced surface tension methods allows for the simulation of low capillary numbers. Further progress should involve thin film and corner flow formation, contact line dynamics and efficient combinations of parallelism and grid adaptation.

This ensemble of approaches is expected to particularly interesting for enhanced oil recovery modelling.
