|Abstract||In this study, we investigate the complexity of two-phase flow (air/water) in a heterogeneous soil sample by using complex network theory, where the supposed porous media is non-deformable media, under the time-dependent gas pressure. Based on the different similarity measurements (i.e., correlation, Euclidean metrics) over the emerged patterns from the evolution of saturation of non-wetting phase of a multi-heterogeneous soil sample, the emerged complex networks are recognized. Understanding of the properties of complex networks (such degree distribution, mean path length, clustering coefficient) can be supposed as a way to analysis of variation of saturation profiles structures (as the solution of finite element method on the coupled PDEs) where complexity is coming from the changeable connection and links between assumed nodes. Also, the path of evolution of the supposed system will be illustrated on the state space of networks either in correlation and Euclidean measurements. The results of analysis showed in a closed system the designed complex networks approach to small world network where the mean path length and clustering coefficient are low and high, respectively. As another result, the evolution of macro -states of system (such mean velocity of air or pressure) can be scaled with characteristics of structure complexity of saturation. In other part, we tried to find a phase transition criterion based on the variation of non-wetting phase velocity profiles over a network which had been constructed over correlation distance.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
