Postgraduate course

Flow in Porous Media

Semester of Instruction

Autumn

Objectives and Content

The course includes equations for one- and multiphase flow in porous media with emphasis on qualitative and quantitative properties for models studied.

Learning Outcomes

After completed course, the students are expected to be able to

  • describe notions like porosity, permeability or saturation
  • describe miscible and immiscible flow in porous media
  • describe what means harmonic average of permeability
  • describe the principle of capillarity pressure and relative permeability
  • give a complete model for a two-phase flow
  • analyze the Riemann's problem and the Buckley Leverett solution.
