Description

Modern imaging techniques have transformed our ability to quantify the pore structure of rocks and porous materials. These allow pore scale modeling of (multiphase) flow and transport problems within natural porous media at an unprecedented level of resolution.
Transport is modeled from the pore to the field scale accounting for upscaling and transfer of information across scales. The proper format of upscaled flow and reactive transport models is assessed. Theoretical developments are advanced jointly with pore scale numerical simulation techniques and results to quantify the way the modeling choice affects uncertainty propagation and quantification across observation scales.
