Analytical solution for large-deposit non-linear reactive flows in porous media
We discuss reactive flows in porous media that exhibit an irreversible chemical reaction between two components, resulting in large solid-product deposition. Previous works used the analytical solution for the linear problem with low deposition to determine model parameters from the reactant breakthrough concentrations and pressure drop growth across the core during laboratory coreflood. The present work derives an exact analytical solution for the non-linear problem with large solid-product deposition. We use the solution for interpretation of the laboratory data, and determination of the type curves for the measured values. Seven sets of experimental data are shown to closely match the data from the analytical model, which validates the analytical model.
