Two-phase flow through fractured porous media

Two-phase flow in fractured porous media is investigated by means of a direct and complete numerical solution of the generalized Darcy equations in a three-dimensional discrete fracture description. The numerical model applies to arbitrary fracture network geometry, and to arbitrary distributions of permeabilities in the porous matrix and in the fractures. It is used here in order to obtain the steady-state macroscopic relative permeabilities of random fractured media. Results are presented as functions of the mean saturation and are discussed in comparison with simple models.
