Computational Issues in Numerical Simulation of Multiphase Flow in Porous Media

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Executive Salon 4

This minisymposium is devoted to numerical simulation of multiphase fluid flow in heterogeneous anisotropic porous media. Special attention is paid to numerical algorithms for solving the systems arising from discretizations of partial differential equations describing the multiphase flow in such porous media. The speakers will discuss preconditioned mixed finite element methods, domain decomposition algorithms, and subgrid upscaling techniques.
