Nature of problem:
This software solves multiphase flow in porous media.
The numerical approach is based on the finite-volume method (FVM). Mass conservation equations for each fluid phase are reformulated into a pressure-saturation system. The generalized Darcy's law is used to compute phase velocities in the porous medium. The pressure-saturation is solved using a segregated method based on the IMPES method. Parallel computing can be performed using the standard domain decomposition method of OpenFOAM®.
The Buckley Leverett examples provided only take a few seconds to run.
