Polymer flooding in petroleum reservoir engineering can be described by a Brinkman‐based model of flow in porous media coupled to a non‐strictly hyperbolic system of conservation laws for multiple components that form the aqueous phase. The coupled flow‐transport problem is discretized by coupling an H (div)‐conforming discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for the Brinkman flow problem with a classical DG method for the transport equations.
