Porous Media

The research of the Porous Media group deals with basic challenges associated with solving the equations that describe flow and transport in porous media. These include the development of rigorous mathematical foundations for the empirical physical laws of fluid motion in porous media, numerical methods for solving the partial differential equations that arise, and characterisation of reservoir properties via inverse modelling based on the observed production history of a reservoir.
