Modeling fluid flow and heat transport in fractured porous media, 2013
Advisors: Inga Berre, Florin A.Radu
Short description of project:
Flow in porous media is an important topic in both academia and the industry. Fractures in a porous medium can be an important contributor to the overall dynamics of a porous system. We investigate a selection of conceptual models for fractured porous media. We discuss the effects of fractures, concerning both single-phase fluid flow and heat transport, and review three different models, and equivalent continuum model, a dual continuum model and a discrete fracture model, are compared through analysis and numerical experiments.
