Formatted Abstract/Summary
To analyze and depict complicated fluid behaviours in fractured porous media with various permeable material matrix across different scales, an Enhanced Heterogeneous Porous Media Computational Model is proposed based on Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). LBM is widely employed to model basic fluid dynamics within disordered structures due to its powerful applicability to mesoscopic fluid mechanics and its potential performance of parallel computing. This paper combines with the force model, statistical material physics and the parallel algorithm to effectively describe the feature changes while fluid passes through the fractured porous media with diverse permeable material matrix of high resolution by using supercomputers. As an application example, a 3D sandstone sample is reconstructed with 36 million grids using the scanned CT images and characterized with different feature values at each lattice grid to distinguish pores, impermeable solids and permeable material matrix by stating its local physical property. The calculation and comparison results with the conventional LBM are discussed to
demonstrate the advantages of our method in modeling complicated flow
phenomena in fractured porous media with variable permeable material matrix
across different scales, and its sound computing performance that keeps the
parallel speedup linearly with the number of processors.
