Abstract

This paper presents a revised computational study exploring pressure variations in divergent pore throat pathways within porous media. Understanding pressure dynamics in pore throats is crucial for various industrial applications, and revisiting computational studies in this area offers insights into the nuances of fluid behavior. Building upon previous research, this study aims to investigate pressure variations along divergent pore throat pathways using updated computational methodologies implemented in MATLAB. By comparing and analyzing pressure data with previous findings, this revised study provides deeper insights into pore-scale fluid dynamics and their implications for industrial processes. The results highlight observed trends, discrepancies, and implications for future research directions. Overall, this study contributes to advancing our understanding of pressure variations in pore throats and lays the groundwork for further investigations in this field.
