Modeling and benchmarking of fractured porous media: flow, transport and deformation - 2017

The Local Organizing Committee is delighted to welcome you to the MBFPM-2017 workshop to be held in Bergen, June 8-9, 2017, organized by the University of Bergen

Recently, the universities of Bergen, Stuttgart and Göttingen as well as the Politecnico di Milano had a profitable collaboration in establishing benchmark problems to test numerical schemes for single-phase flow in fractured porous media. The outcome was fruitful discussions on the state of the art of this field and a scientific publication (http://arxiv.org/abs/1701.01496) that tries to compare several available numerical schemes and to set criteria to validate forthcoming ones.

The aim of the workshop is threefold:

  1. Present to the international community the achievements of the aforementioned cooperation.

  2. Present the current state-of-the-art in modeling flow, transport, and deformation processes in fractured porous media.

  3. Discuss the extension of the existing benchmark for single-phase flow in a rigid fractured porous medium. Possibilities are to enhance the physics by adding processes like deformation, transport and reactions, and/or to increase the geometrical complexity.

During the workshop, various presentations, from theoretical to more applied, will enhance the exchanges of expertise among scientists and foster further fundamental research.

Important: the workshop is upon invitation, if you want to participate please contact the program organization committee.
