11:30-12:00, Informal session: "Survival skills for students"
12:00-1:00: Research Talk: "Fun numerical problems in subsurface flow modeling"
Subsurface flow modeling is a mecca for the numerical analyst and computational engineer. For the last 15 years, our research group has had a terrific time exploring problems in this field. We are particularly interested in highly nonlinear problems, such as those governing thermal recovery processes. In this talk, I will discuss one such process, in-situ combustion, and the associated challenges around upscaling of kinetics and strong coupling between flow and transport.
Lunch to follow 1-2:30pm in the Founders' 2nd Floor Atrium. All are welcome!
