Abstract: This paper presents currently available pore-scale predictive techniques for two-phase flow in porous media, which are based on the real description of the pore space. Two pore-scale models are established with FVM-VOF and LBM-VOF method based on the different complex foam structure, respectively. The two-phase flow of pore fluid is numerically simulated and the influence of the porous structure wettability is discussed based on the numerical predictions. These pore-scale models can be adopted to describe the detailed flow characteristic in porous media and evaluate their average effects.
