I know reservoir simulation and related fields has heavily leveraged FEM for multiphase flow... Also, check out http://wwwdimat.unipv.it/heltai/wikideal/index.php/Gallery#Multiphase_flow You might peruse Wolfgang's papers http://www.math.tamu.edu/~bangerth/publications.html to see if the application is described in more detail or just ask him directly...
