Hadi Hajibeygi from the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of the TU Delft (The Netherlands) will give the online short course "Multiscale Modeling and Simulation: Scalable Simulation of Nonlinear Processes in Heterogeneous Fractured Porous Media" on December 11, 12, 14, and 15, 2020.
Short Course Summary
The increasing demand for accurate and efficient simulation of flow and mechanics in subsurface formations motivates development of advanced computational methods. The non-linear, heterogeneous, uncertain, dynamic and coupled nature of the mathematical formulations–describing flow, transport, and reaction–make such developments quite challenging, yet possible if a multiscale methodology is followed. Such a multiscale methodology should allow for a physics-algebraic-based dynamic multilevel description of the highly-resolved heterogeneous discrete equations in space and time. At the same time, it allows for crossing up and down between any resolutions, and systematic error reduction to any desired level. This short course is offered to enable the attendees to get an in-depth knowledge and hands-on implementation skills for the so-called “basis-function-based multiscale methods”, and their extensions to complex systems with fractures. At the end of this course, all participants will develop their own multiscale simulator in Matlab/Python from scratch.
