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.

The interdisciplinary center will involve approximately 40 people, including faculty, researchers, postdocs and PhD students with background in applied and computational mathematics and geoscience. Several MSc students do their research projects within the center.

Porous Media Tea time talk

Numerical modeling of fracture deformation and propagation in poroelastic media

Understanding fracture deformation and propagation in poroelastic media is central in development of geothermal systems. One of CSD's young scientists, Hau Trung Dang, gave a talk about the subject at the Porous media Tea Time series.
