Thin liquid films and capillary bridges can effectively enhance the connectivity of a porous medium, making it possible for the drainage of apparently trapped liquid clusters. This drainage due to film flow was recently characterized in a paper published in Phys. Rev. Fluids by PoreLab researcher Marcel Moura and collaborators. The experimental work has shown

The paper from A. Hansen, S. Sinha, D. Bedeaux, S. Kjelstrup. M. Aa. Gjennestad and M. Vassvik: “Relations between seepage velocities in immiscible, incompressible two-phase flow in porous media” (2018) has become the most downloaded paper ever in Transport in Porous Media, the main journal in porous media research, starting in 1986. We demonstrate in
