Abstract

An examination of the scaling structure along with some extensive simulations on viscous fingering in circular geometry strongly suggest that the asymptotic patterns are compact. Experiments and simulations are in a transient regime that may exhibit a reasonable range where apparent fractal growth may be found. Arguments to connect the case of viscous fingering with that of vanishing surface tension are made.
