A new formulation of immiscible compressible two-phase flow in porous media
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 336 (2008) no. 7, pp. 600-605.

A new formulation is proposed to describe immiscible compressible two-phase flow in porous media. The main feature of this formulation is the introduction of a global pressure. The resulting equations are written in a fractional flow formulation and lead to a coupled system which consists of a nonlinear parabolic (the global pressure equation) and a nonlinear diffusion–convection one (the saturation equation) which can be efficiently solved numerically.

Une nouvelle formulation est proposée pour décrire les écoulements diphasiques immiscibles compressibles en milieux poreux. Ce modèle est basé sur la notion de pression globale. Les équations du problème sont écrites sous forme de flux fractionnel et introduisent un système couplé faisant intervenir une équation parabolique nonlinéaire (équation de la pression globale) et une équation de diffusion–convection nonlinéaire (équation de la saturation). Cette formulation permet la mise en oeuvre d'une méthode de calcul numérique performante pour le système diphasique complet.
