Analysis and Simulation of Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Two-Phase Flows
Modeling multicomponent flows in porous media is important for many applications relevant to energy and environment.
Advances in pore-scale imaging, increasing availability of computational resources, and developments in numerical algorithms have started rendering direct pore-scale numerical simulations of multiphase flow in pore structures feasible. This talk presents recent advances in the discretization of phase-field models for systems of two-phase flows, characterized by coupled Navier-Stokes and Cahn-Hilliard equations. Spatial discretization is based on the interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin methods. Time discretization is either fully implicit or a decoupled splitting approach.
Both theory and application of the proposed methods to model flows in porous structures are discussed.
