Porous Media Group

Main content

Fracture flow

The Porous Media Group educates students and researchers in the fundamental challenges associated with solving the equations that describe flow and transport in and deformation of 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. Associated applications include e.g. geothermal energy, subsurface energy and CO2 storage, flow in biological tissues, and hydrocarbon production.

Inga Berre is ERC recipient number 10,000

As grantee number 10,000 to receive funding from the European Research Council (ERC), Inga Berre will use applied mathematics in order to understand what happens underground when heat is extracted from the Earth's interior.


Indo-Norwegian Workshop on Computational Challenges and Modelling of Coupled Processes in Porous Media

We are organizing a one and half-day workshop on Computational Challenges and Modelling of Coupled Processes in Porous Media. This is being organized under the Project SPIRE funded by the University of Bergen that aims at developing collaborations between India and Norway. The objective of this...
