PorousFlowBrineCO2

Fluid state class for brine and CO2

A high precision equation of state for brine and CO, including the mutual solubility of CO into the liquid brine and water vapor into the CO-rich gas phase using the accurate fugacity-based formulation of Spycher et al. (2003) and Spycher et al. (2005).

This model is suitable for simulations of geological storage of CO in saline aquifers.

For more details, see the documentation of the brine and CO equation of state.
