Abstract

A mathematical model developed earlier [8] is used to make a numerical investigation of the mechanism and wave dynamics of a process in layered strata consisting of hydrodynamically connected layers with different flow parameters. A study is made of a micellar solution with an exterior hydrocarbon phase, i.e., a solution that on contact with the stratal fluids forms a two-phase structure: a hydrocarbon fluid (micellar solution and stratal oil) and water with polymer admixture. The concentration of salts in the stratum is assumed to be constant.
