By Jun Yao, Zhao-Qin Huang

This e-book solves the open difficulties in fluid circulate modeling in the course of the fractured vuggy carbonate reservoirs. Fractured vuggy carbonate reservoirs often have advanced pore buildings, which comprise not just matrix and fractures but additionally the vugs and cavities. because the vugs and cavities are abnormal fit and differ in diameter from millimeters to meters, modeling fluid movement via fractured vuggy porous media remains to be a problem. the present modeling concept and techniques usually are not compatible for such reservoir. It starts off from the concept that of discrete fracture and fracture-vug networks version, after which develops the corresponding mathematical types and numerical equipment, together with discrete fracture version, discrete fracture-vug version, hybrid version and multiscale types. in line with those discrete porous media versions, a few identical medium types and strategies also are mentioned. the entire modeling and techniques shared during this ebook supply the foremost contemporary suggestions into this area.

This quantity illustrates many of the major features of magmatic task from Devonian (408 million years in the past) to early Permian (270 million years in the past) occasions in SW England. this era covers the innovative improvement of the Variscan mountain-building episode, from preliminary basin formation to ultimate deformation and the following improvement of a fold mountain belt - the Variscan Orogen.

Hydroxyapatite: Synthesis and Applications

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is the first fabric of common bone and teeth--and the topic of a lot excessive study lately for brand spanking new versions with specific useful houses for biomedical engineering functions. it's a evidently happening mineral type of calcium apatite, with the formulation Ca10(PO4)6(OH).

The saturation at interface of fractures and the matrix system is not always continuous, as shown in Fig. 8. Herein, the water phase saturation equation of fractures needs special treatment in above superposing process. For the flow potential of water is continuous, the capillary force potential and the capillary pressure are both continuous. Combining Fig. 8, the saturation of fractures and the matrix system meet the equation as follows: & k up ¼ ki if Ui ! Uj kj if Ui \Uj ð2:24Þ For fractures, Eq.

The relationship between different media’s saturations can be established based on the concept of capillary pressure continuation. For example, as far as fracture media:  f À m f Á Sm B w Sw ¼ exp ÀB 42 2 Discrete Fracture Model The maximum of Bk in Eq. 89) is chosen as reference media in here.

So based on the discrete fracture model, the whole region of reservoir can be expressed as 0 X ¼ Xm þ aXf ð2:60Þ where a is fracture aperture.
