Abstract:

We derive and analytically and numerically solve statistical moment equations for immiscible flow in porous media in the limit of zero capillary pressure, with application to secondary oil recovery. Mean and variance of water saturation exhibit a bimodal character two shocks replace the single shock front evident in the classical Buckley-Leverett saturation profile.
