In the following section, we return to reactive transport modelling (Chapter 2) but with a focus on emergent structures and the role of mechanical processes during fluid-rock interactions. First some of the basic concepts in reactive transport modelling are introduced. For comprehensive accounts of reactive transport modelling in multicomponent systems, the reader is referred to the literature cited in Chapter 2.

For fluid flow in porous media, it is possible to model flow related transport in the pore networks by direct solution of the Navier-Stokes equations or simplified versions, possibly augmented with a term for surface tension. Such simulations require...
