Abstract and scope of work

The scope of this note is to highlight current research efforts towards elucidating and understanding the principal mechanism in two-phase flow in porous media, namely, the interplay /dialect between viscosity, capillarity and porous medium structure, and its effect on the operational performance of such flows/processes - expressed by the interstitial arrangement(s) of the flow and its stability, the efficiency of the process (flowrate/power), etc.
