Steam Transport in Porous Media

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Numerous investigators have pursued development of large-scale two-phase digital simulation models of vapor-dominated geothermal systems. These represent significant advances in the capability to numerically simulate complex systems. However, the basic physical phenomena which are being modeled are still under investigation. The purpose of this discussion is to present the results of a numerical study in which some of the physical phenomena which may occur in vapor-dominated geothermal reservoirs are examined. These phenomena include: (1) superheating of discharging steam, (2) energy changes due to compressible work, (3) conductive heat transport, and (4) gravitational effects of the steam column. Further details pertaining ... continued below
