Porous Media Tea Time Talk

The PorousMediaTTT Team is happy to invite you to the first Porous Media Tea Time Talks of 2021 (#PorousMediaTTT). The session will be on 9th February 2021 at 10:30 Oslo time localtime on: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuK0ogQKdSxq6pW-vljLN1Q .


The two presentations are:

Effects of pore-size correlation length on two-phase flow and transport properties

By: Senyou An, University of Manchester, UK

  • The generation of pore network with specific statistic information.
  • How the pore-size correlation length affects two-phase flow and transport.
  • A semi-analytical equation for the estimation of mass transfer across porous media.



Impact of matrix deformation on drying of granular materials

By: Oshri Borgman, Université de Rennes 1, France

  • We study drying in deformable granular media by coupling a pore-network model for fluid displacement and a micro-mechanical model for grain displacement
  • We capture the impact of grain displacement on the emergence of preferential drying patterns
  • Lower pore size heterogeneity and lower confining stress of the granular material promote preferential drying and maintain higher drying rates
