Paper Title:
Numerical Comparison of Two and Three Dimensional Flow Regimes in Porous Media
  Abstract

The purpose of this work is to study the fluid flow regimes in a porous media with high enough velocities (in the range of laminar flow). In our study, the results obtained from expanding Darcy’s equation to Forchheimer’s equation with volume averaging method have been used for studdying the fluid flow behavior in 2D and 3D models. Results of numerical simulations show that in all cases, there are weak inertial regime, strong inertial regime and transition zone. In all the cases, the domain of weak inertial regime is relatively narrow, and this problem is intensified in the 3D numerical simulations. This could be the reason of missing the weak inertial regime in experimental studies on inertial fluid flow in porous media. The domain of strong inertial regime in 3D models is so wide that after Darcy’s regime, the governed regime is the strong inertial regime. To obtain more accurate and analytical results, more studies should be done on the 2D and the 3D flow regimes.
