VHS Stuttgart: Public SFB 1313 lecture by Rainer Helmig

A lecture in the context of the lecture series "Questions to the scientific community"

On Tuesday, 13th November 2018, Rainer Helmig speaks in the context of the lecture series Questions to the scientific community of the Volkshochschule Stuttgart about "From the brain to energy storage: Porous media are everywhere".

From the brain to energy storage: Porous media are everywhere
The understanding of flow, transport and deformation in porous media has a high relevance e.g. for the optimization of fuel cells, energy storage, the prediction of landslides due to heavy precipitation or the spread of tumours in human tissue.
As a natural source of energy, the underground is increasingly becoming the focus of interest, e.g. for the extraction of fossil methane or the use of geothermal energy as a natural source of energy. The "underground system" is of great importance to us as an important natural resource and as a possible storage system. Rainer Helmig explains the particular positive or negative storage properties and their effects on groundwater.
