About this book

Introduction

This investigation is an outgrowth of my doctoral dissertation at Princeton University. I am particularly grateful to Professors George F. Pinder and William G. Gray of Princeton for their advice during both my research and my writing. I believe that finite-element collocation holds promise as a numer­ ical scheme for modeling complicated flows in porous media. However, there seems to be a "conventional wisdom" maintaining that collocation is hopelessly beset by oscillations and is, in some way, fundamentally inappropriate for multiphase flows. I hope to dispel these objections, realizing that others will remain for further work. The U. S. National Science Foundation funded much of this study through grant number NSF-CEE-8111240.
