Multiphase Flow In Permeable Media
A Pore-scale Perspective
This book provides a fundamental description of multiphase fluid flow through porous rock, based on understanding movement at the pore, or microscopic, scale.

Martin J. Blunt is Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College London, visiting professor at Politecnico di Milano and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Transport in Porous Media. He publishes widely on multiphase flow in porous media applied to oil recovery, groundwater flows and carbon dioxide storage. He is a distinguished member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), having won the 2011 SPE Lester C. Uren Award, and the 2012 Darcy Medal for lifetime achievement from the Society of Core Analysts. This book is inspired by recent research, and based on courses taught to thousands of students and professionals from around the world.
'This book quickly has become one of my all-time favorite textbooks .… the mix of original papers, classic works, review papers, and textbooks, together with an expansive and up-to-date collection of current literature, is one of the strongest points of the book. The reference list alone is worth the cost of this volume … This is one of those rare books that hits the ﬁne balance between superﬁcial and too much detail … I highly recommend Multiphase Flow in Permeable Media (Blunt 2017) to anyone interested in the ﬂow of immiscible ﬂuids in the subsurface.' Benjamin J. Rostron, Groundwater
