In this work we present a systematic literature review regarding the macroscopic approaches to modeling immiscible two-phase flow in porous media, the formulation process of the incorporate PDE based on Film Model(viscous coupling), the calculation of saturation profile around the transition zone based on Rapoport-Leas Equation and Film Model, a systematic literature review of the LBM CFD methods including the particle-based LBM and porous-medium-based LBM for multiphase flow, and the sample calculation of particle-based LBM in a random porous medium. Finally we come to present a new approach to modeling immiscible two-phase flow in porous media. The suggested approach to immiscible two-phase flow in porous media describes the dispersed mesoscopic fluids’ interfaces which are highly influenced by the injected interfacial energy and the local interfacial energy capacity. It reveals a new possibility of modeling two-phase flow through energy balance. The saturation profile generated through the suggested approach is different from those through other approaches.
