The impact of wettability and surface roughness on fluid displacement and capillary trapping in 2D‐ and 3D‐porous media Part 1: Wettability‐controlled phase transition of trapping efficiency in glass beads packs

Abstract Fluid invasion, displacement of one fluid by another in porous media, is important in a large number of industrial and natural processes. Of special interest is the trapping of gas and oil clusters. We study the impact of wettability on fluid pattern formation and capillary trapping in three‐dimensional glass beads packs (d mean = […]
