Based on the basic balance laws and the second law of thermodynamics, a model for multiphase fluid flows through poro-elastic media is presented. The basic conservation laws. Including the balance of phasic equilibrated forces are are described. Based on the thermodynamics of the multiphase mixture, appropriate constitutive equations are formulated. It is shown that the present theory leads to the extension of Darcy’s law and contains, as its special case, Biot’s (1957) theory of saturated poro-elastic media. The special case of gas-liquid flows in porous media is discussed.
