Abstract

In the process of hydrate dissociation to produce methane gas from methane hydrate, hydrate reformation may cause due to the change of temperature or pressure. It is important to know the movement of methane hydrate forming and model it numerically. Therefore, hydrate forming simulation was carried out with some governing equations. To make the interface of gas-water, lattice Boltzmann method was used. Phase field model was used by growth of nuclei. And the number of nuclei of methane hydrate was given as parameters, the validation of this simulation was estimated by comparing with other parameter.
