The emergence of complex enhanced recovery procedures in the field of hydrocarbon extraction techniques has emphasized the need for sophisticated mathematical tools, capable of modeling intricate chemical and physical phenomena and sharply changing fluid interfaces. This volume explains which problems need to be addressed, why they are difficult, what has been done previously to treat these difficulties, and which new techniques appear to possess
potential for obtaining good simulation results.
Problems Arising in the Modeling of Processes for Hydrocarbon Recovery; Finite Element and Finite Difference Methods for Continuous Flows in Porous Media; A Front Tracking Reservoir Simulator; Five-Spot Validation Studies and the Water Coning Problem; Statistical Fluid Dynamics: The Influence of Geometry on Surface Instabilities; Some Numerical Methods for Discontinuous Flows in Porous Media
