Upscaling and multiscale methods play a fundamental role in describing and solving for flow and transport in heterogeneous reservoirs. A few talks in this session focus on nonlinear effects in compositional upscaling and multiphase simulations while others describe new unstructured, algebraic approaches for the pressure equation.
