Abstract
Empirical or theoretical extensions of Darcy's law for immiscible two‐phase flow have shown significant limitations in properly modeling the flow at the continuum scale. We tackle this problem by proposing a set of upscaled equations based on pore‐scale flow regimes, that is, the topology of flowing phases. The incompressible Navier‐Stokes equation is upscaled by means of multiple‐scale expansions and its closures derived from the mechanical...
