MSc project

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.
