We present here a direct comparison between a slow quasi-two-dimensional pore scale drainage experiment and a two-component 2D lattice Boltzmann simulation. An experimental setup consisting of approximately 10 × 10 pores is mapped onto the 2D lattice Boltzmann model with the aspiration of reproducing the behavior and dynamics of a slow drainage process on a pore scale.
