The PoreLab course 1 on ” Theory and simulation of flows in complex media ” will be organized during the fall semester 2019. The courses are held in Oslo at the PoreLab video communication room in the Physics Building, University of Oslo, with a video connection in Trondheim from our meeting room at our PoreLab offices (S.P. Andersens vei 15 B, PTS2, 2nd floor.) every Tuesday (lectures) and Thursday (Group teaching) from 12:15 to 14:00.
Professor Eirik Flekkøy is the lecturer for this course.
First lecture is on August 20th and first group teaching in on August 29th.
Theory and simulation of flows in complex media
Background assumed: Equilibrium statistical mechanics. Some students may know about diffusion/Langevin equations/basic theory of Onsager reciprocity relations, others will know the Boltzmann equation. Goal: Bring the student to understand the hydrodynamics of flows in porous media, including thermal gradients and concentration gradients. Also, the student will get a toolbox to simulate the flow in porous media on different scales. The course will support the experimental course in PoreLab.
