A correct description of multiphase flow behaviour in a porous media involves the determination of various fluid and porous media parameters and, a constitutive relationship among capillary pressure (Pc), saturation (S) and relative permeability (kr). The determination of a Pc-S relationship is difficult because of two effects: (i) presence of heterogeneities in the domain and (ii) the dynamic effects in Pc-S relationships. While the significance of the individual factors has been studied at various scales using different approaches, the combination of the two effects on Pc-S relationships is not well characterised.
