A semi-implicit method for incompressible three-phase flow in porous media

In this paper, we present a semi-implicit method for the incompressible three-phase flow equations in two dimensions. In particular, a high-order discontinuous Galerkin spatial discretization is coupled with a backward Euler discretization in time.

Three-phase flow simulations in one dimension

The modeling of three-phase fluid flow has many important applications in reservoir simulation. In this paper, we introduce a high order method for sequentially solving the phase pressure-saturation formulation of three-phase flow.
