Pore Network Modeling

Multiphase flow in porous media occurs in many natural and artificial processes, such as subsurface flow of hydrocarbons and brine, geologic storage of CO2, reactive transport through catalysts, and non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) migration in soil. Under the support of the rapidly developing high-resolution CT-imaging and computer technologies, pore-scale network modelling has emerged as an… Read More

Computational Chemistry

At the COIFPM, researchers perform molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations in order to probe petrophysical and chemical phenomena, wherein impact is governed by processes at the nanometer scale and smaller. Models are typically designed to address fundamental questions and simultaneously provide insight that can be applied to improve relevant technologies, such as hydraulic fracturing, enhanced oil recovery and… Read More
