International attention has been considerably paid for the technology of CO2 capture and storage (CCS) these days because of global warming. Among the technologies of CCS, the prediction of CO2 behavior in underground is very crucial for CO2 storage design. In the present study, a pore-scale level model is developed to mimic real porous structure and by using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) the characteristics of the CO2 flow and thermal fields are investigated in the pore-level micro porous structure. Varying the CO2 injection conditions such as flow rate, pressure and temperature, the behavior of CO2 is calculated. Especially, the physical conditions such as temperature and pressure are set up equivalent to the underground condition at which CO2 is injected. From the results, the injection condition of CO2 is very critical to the characteristics of the flow and thermal fields in the micro-scale porous structure.
