Seminar 15 June

This week’s seminar will be held by Mats Brun at 1pm.

Title: Upscaling and discretization of coupled geomechanics, flow and heat in a poro-elastic medium in the quasi-static situation

Abstract: Motivated by geothermal energy storage in the subsurface, we undertake the formal derivation of Biot’s law for a poro-elastic medium […]

Seminar 20 April

This week’s seminar will be given by Ingeborg Gåseby Gjerde.

Title: Mixed methods for the Poisson equation with a Dirac right-hand side Abstract: In this talk, we will investigate the use of mixed methods for the Poisson equation with a Dirac right-hand side. The solution to this problem does not lie in H1, leading to suboptimal […]

Researcher position

There is a new position in the PMG related to the TheMSES project. The researcher project concerns the understanding of how fractures can be created and opened as a consequence of change in flow and temperature in the subsurface when hot fluids are pumped down at elevated pressures and later produced. We warmly […]

Seminar 23 Mars

This week’s seminar will be given by Florian List and will take place at 1pm on Thursday, as usual.

Title: Iterative methods for solving Richards’ equation Abstract: This presentation concerns linearization methods for efficiently solving the Richards’ equation, a degenerate elliptic-parabolic equation which models flow in saturated/unsaturated porous media. The discretization of Richards’ equation is […]

The Porous Media Group starts blogging!

We, the members of the porous media group at the University of Bergen, have decided to start a blog. The intention is to present the ongoing work and activities of the group in an accessible form. So, in the future you may expect to find updates on matters of the following nature:

Short presentations of […]
