TheMSES - Final Results and Impacts
The NFR Toppforsk project ‘Thermo-Mechanical Energy Storage’ (250223), led by Jan Martin Nordbotten, has come to an end in 2021. The final outcomes of the project are summarized in form of a report and reflections of the PIs. Furthermore, each graduated PhD student of the project tells us about their most relevant achievements towards thermo-mechanical energy storage.
A description of the final results in each of the four work packages of the project as well as the overall impact on the field is described in the final report. Furtermore, a detailed overview of all activities connected to the project can be found in the project bank of the Norwegian Research Council.
Reflections on the project by the PIs
Project leader Jan Martin Nordbotten meets with work package leaders Kundan Kumar and Eirik Keilegavlen to reflect on the relevance and achievements of TheMSES, the development of the software PorePy, setting the "right" goals, the role of theoretical mathematics for real world applications, and benefits of large projects.
