A mathematical model for miscible displacement in fractured porous media is developed. The model takes into account advective, gravitational and crossflow mechanisms of mass exchange between fracture and matrix. The model is normalized by using the dimensionless parameters which characterize the process, and the analytical solutions of the resulting system of equations are provided by utilizing the method of characteristics. The model developed has been compared with experimental results and
