The PorousMediaTTT team is happy to invite you to the last Porous Media Tea Time Talks (#PorousMediaTTT) session for this year on 17.11.2020 at 15.00 Oslo / local time on: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuK0ogQKdSxq6pW-vljLN1Q.
The two presentations are:
Experimental study of fluid flow and solute transport in fractured porous media
By: Mehrdad Ahkami, ETH Zürich, Switzerland
- Application of 3D-printing for pore-scale studies
- Utilising imaging techniques such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Laser-Induced Fluorescence (LIF) to study pore-scale processes
- Exploring theories, using direct measurements of fluid flow and solute transport
Bacterial Motility in Porous media
By: Tapomoy Bhattacharjee, Princeton University, USA
- While bacterial motility is well-studied on flat surfaces or in unconfined liquid media, in environment and energy applications, most bacteria are found in disordered porous media, such as soils, sediments, and subsurface formations.
- Understanding how porous confinement alters bacterial motility is therefore critical to processes ranging from fouling of oil reservoirs, sustaining plant growth, and remediating contaminants in soil.
- We are using a novel experimental platform to study how bacteria explore 3D porous environments, how confinement alters their spreading, and how cellular chemotaxis controls their collective migration.
