Stable Unique Riemann Solution For 2×2 Hyperbolic System

Multiple discontinuous solutions of conservation law systems is a well-known phenomenon. Selection of unique solution has been performed by either stability criteria or asymptotic vanishing dissipation method. Recently developed splitting mapping and the asymptotic method of matched singular first-order expansions allow deriving unique solutions of several Riemann problems. One of those relates to in situ storage of CO2 and hydrogen in geological formations, which is a top priority in Australian energy sector.

The scope comprises derivation of unique Riemann solution for 2×2 hyperbolic system stable with respect to vanishing diffusion and capillary pressure. The topological aspect included description of the phenomenon in terms of classification of singular points of smooth manifolds. The industrial application includes using the Riemann solution in 3D commercial stream-line reservoir simulator.
