Fluid flow through porous media
- Studying the system of elliptic and parabolic equations governing the flow and transport in multiphase, multicomponent porous media flows. In such problems, usually a more viscous fluid is displaced by a less
viscous fluid. The highly unstable interface between these two fluids spontaneously generates finger patterns. The multiscale heterogeneity in the permeability field of these porous rocks plays a vital role in the development of these flows.
These flow problems often involve the spatial and temporal evolution of an interface with discontinuity in the state variables across the interface. There is a wide variety of applications for such flows starting from chemical enhanced oil
recovery to subsurface flows and blood flow through the arteries, to name a few.
Mathematical Modeling - Developing robust and accurate models for these complex flows that can be used to predict flow behavior and also understand the effects of various system parameters.
Numerical Computation - Developing efficient and fast high-order numerical methods to solve the highly nonlinear, coupled system of flow equations.
