Abstract

Summary

In this paper, we present gravity-driven mixing for different CO2-hydrocarbon mixtures using a highly accurate computational model. The simulation results are used to characterize the fine-scale behavior for gravity-stable systems. Preliminary simulations for flowing systems are presented. We discuss the implications for behavior of convective systems at the field scale.
