Two Phase Darcy flow with gravity -> problem
I am currently working on a Darcy two phase flow solver with IMPES method (IMplicit Pressure Explicit Saturation). I want to simulate a two phase flow in porous media in 3D. It is why I use permeability tensor fields. These permeabilities depend on the liquid saturation
Here is the snippet I programmed in OpenFOAM:
- S and p are volScalarFields
- M_beta and M_gamma are volTensorFields.
- K is a dimensionedTensor
The compilation is ok.
As a validation case, I simulate a the flow through a 1D vertical column: I inject a liquid at the top of column initially filled up with gas. the simulation is correct on a case without gravity (g= (0 0 0)). However, the code diverges when I tried to simulate a flow with gravity (g = (0 -9.81 0)).
Is there something wrong with the gravity in my code ?
