Abstract: Using mass conservation and Darcy's law to describe flow through isotropic porous media leads to a Laplace equation, which may be solved numerically at each time step using the boundary element method. For anisotropic porous media in which the permeability matrix is symmetric, the problem can be solved in the same way by rotating and stretching the coordinates. The numerical model has been compared with analytical solutions and experimental data in the case of radial front flows and with finite element for a frontal injection.
