Multiscale Simulation of Flow in Natural Porous Media

The increasing demand for accurate and efficient simulation of flow in subsurface natural formations motivates the development of advanced numerical methods. The non-linear, heterogeneous, uncertain, dynamic and coupled nature of the mathematical formulations --describing flow and transport in these formations-- make the development of the advanced methods quite challenging, yet possible if a multiscale methodology is followed. The multiscale methodology allows for a physics-algebraic-based dynamic multilevel description of the highly-detailed discrete equations; at the same time, allows for crossing up and down between any resolutions, and systematic error reduction to any desired level (compared with the finest-scale reference solution). This course addresses one of the main developments in the field of multiscale modeling and simulation, i.e., multiscale finite volume method. Through intensive lectures and practical sessions during these two days, the participating students will first gain the necessary knowledge and then develop their own multiscale simulator (in MATLAB) for a 1-dimensional heterogeneous reservoir. Current and future challenges in this scientific field will be also discussed.‎
