Short Course "Multiscale modeling of flow in deformable fractured heterogenous porous media"

This short course took place at the University of Stuttgart from May 3 to 4, 2018.

General Information

May 3-4, 2018

University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 61, rooms U1.003 and Seminarraum 2

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.

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

This course covers the following topics:

  • Multiphase flow in porous media (formulation and challenges)
  • Finite-volume-based fine-scale computational solution
  • Why multiscale? 
  • Multiscale formulation strateg
  • Practical session to develop 1D and 2D Matlab code
  • Fractured porous media: Projectioned-EDFM method
  • Multiscale vs. upscaling for fractured media
  • Deformable porous media: Poromechanics (elastic) at fine-scale and multiscale
  • Practical session for FV/FE poro-mechanics (geo-mechanics)


This short course is given by H. Hajibeygi from the TU Delft (Netherlands).
