VISTA CSD - Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics

The research center CSD targets how the subsurface is deformed as a result of injection and production of fluids. This occurs in production of hydrocarbons and geothermal energy, storage of energy or CO2 in the subsurface, or by disposal of wastewater.

CSD’s primary objective is to develop fundamental knowledge and educate next generation researchers to understand how subsurface fluid injection and extraction results in deformation, fault reactivation and fracturing. The center targets critical and fundamental research questions through mathematical and numerical modeling and data analysis.

Well-posedness of evolutionary differential variational–hemivariational inequalities and applications to frictional contact mechanics

In this paper, we develop a general framework for an evolutionary variational-hemivariational inequality coupled with a differential equation. The framework is adapted to a frictional contact problem with applications in earth sciences. In here we present an approximation of the so-called rate-and...
