    Abstract

    Steady-state solutions of the classical equations for immiscible two phase flow are used successfully in numerical upscaling in the limits of viscous or capillary dominated flow. The steady-state methods are faster than the conventional dynamic methods which require what is effectively a single phase solution to the flow equations. The use of direct implicit method to obtain steady-state solutions of immiscible two-phase flow in strongly heterogeneous media is discussed.
