Relative Permeability Hysteresis Drainage: Capillary and viscous forces operate in the same direction. Imbibition: Capillary and viscous forces operate in opposite directions, resulting in a portion of the non-wetting phase becoming trapped and unable to move.
Calculation of Non-wetting Phase Relative Permeability (Land) Basis: Correct for amount of “trapped” phase. Use resulting “free” saturation for the calculations. Equations written for a gas-water two- phase system, gas is non-wetting phase. Applies oil-water system if it is strongly water-wet.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
