Short Course "Capillarity in Porous Media at Different Scales"

This short course took place at the University of Stuttgart from October 7 to 11, 2019.

General Information

October 7-11, 2019

University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 61, U1.003 (MML)

This short course is organized in cooperation with the International Research Training Group (IRTG) DROPIT.

Members and associated international members of SFB 1313 and IRTG DROPIT are invited to attend the short course. Participants will get 3 credits for attending the course.

Participants only need to have a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics. Familiarity with concepts of derivation and integration would be sufficient.

The course is free of charge. Possible costs for accommodation or travel expenses cannot be reimbursed.

The following subjects will be discussed:

  • Capillarity at pore scale (4 hours)
  • Capillarity at macroscale; fundamentals (4 hours)
  • Capillarity at macroscale; computational and experimental studies (6 hours)

The lectures (including exercises and breaks) will take place daily from 9:00pm to 12:30pm.

More details about the content of the course are available here.


The workshop is given by Majid Hassanizadeh.

Majid Hassanizadeh is Professor of Hydrogeology at Utrecht University whose research focuses on the transport of substances in porous media. Through his research, he contributes to solving problems with societal relevance, such as soil contamination. In addition, his research has proved to be of value for the industry.
