The center offers long-term prospects of educational evolution, starting from PoreLabs master program, continuing via a range of PhD-opportunities to more senior researcher roles.
The master program requires a bachelor level background including some thermodynamics and statistical physics and involves teaching both at NTNU and UiO.
The entry course PoreLab Physics (FYS4480) gives the student a solid background to proceed with a master or PhD. After completing the course you will
- have knowledge of hydrodynamic and thermal transport in porous media
- have a solid knowledge of the Navier Stokes equation and Darcy’s law, and also such diffusion processes as those described by the Langevin equation and Green-Kubo relations.
- be able to program lattice Boltzmann models and network models that are used to simulate flows with complex boundaries or reactions.
- know the theory behind the simulations and a have an understanding of how processes at the small scale may affect processes on a larger scale. This includes percolation theory as it is applied as a model for flow in porous media.
