Viscous fingering has been actively studied for some time, not only because of its economic importance, but also because it is an area in which both experimental and theoretical studies can be performed in parallel. Moreover, recently developed statistical models of aggregation and growth have been found to be a useful means of representing fingering.
- Shear Rate
- Fractal Dimension
- Viscous Fluid
- High Flow Rate
- Capillary Number
