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.

Numerical Simulations of Viscous Fingering in Fractured Porous Media

This paper study the impact of fractures on the unstable displacement of viscous fingers. Particular focus is given the transition from a regime where the flow is dominated by the viscous instabilities, to a regime where the heterogeneity induced by the fractures define the flow paths.
