Title: Multiscale Modeling of Porous Medium Systems. In: Handbook of Porous Media, Third edition

Abstract

The use of computers over the last 60 years for simulating subsurface “ow problems has provided an impressive, ever-expanding ability to model processes at a high resolution. Whereas in the 1960s a computational grid with 500 œxed nodes would have pushed the boundaries of computer power [59], simulations today involve millions of spatial grid points and adaptive meshes [40,57].
