Porous Media Tea Time Talk # 10

The Porous Media Tea Time Talks (PMTTT) team is happy to invite you to our next Porous Media Tea Time Talks (#PorousMediaTTT) session at  03.11.2020 at 10.30 Oslo time/local time on: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuK0ogQKdSxq6pW-vljLN1Q​.

The two presentations are:

Are machines intelligent enough to infer REVs from raw microCT images?

By: Ankita Singh, UNSW, Australia

  • A novel texture-analysis technique called Gray-Level Size-Zone Matrix (GLSZM) is used to address the challenge of inferring grayscale representative elementary volume (GREV) sizes directly from raw micro-CT images or grayscale images.
  • GLSZMs encapsulate details regarding the connectivity of pores and minerals, mineralogical variations, and microporous regions, which present a challenge to the existing segmentation routines.
  • This approach allows users to infer GREVs in a robust, reproducible, and computationally efficient manner.



Scalable simulation models for fractured reservoirs with complex geometries

By: Mousa Hosseinimehr, TUDelft, The Netherlands

The goal of the Porous Media TTT is to act as a complimentary platform to the already very successful Geoscience and Geoenergy webinars with the focus placed on young professionals.

This year is bringing in many new challenges to the worldwide porous media community, and those challenges can be particularly harsh against those of us at an early career stage. As conferences worldwide are being cancelled or postponed, many of us are found with little practical outlet to advertise our recent work and interact with the broader scientific community. With that in mind, we, a team ofyoung porous media researchers from different groups, have decided to create a virtual outlet, the Porous Media Tea Time Talks  to help fill in that gap in form of a regular webinar.

The 30 min webinar, including two presentations (2 x 10 + 5 min) from speakers of different institutes, will occur fortnightly at varying times to accommodate researchers from around the world.
