Research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research

I hold a PhD and M. Tech. in physical chemistry from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and have been a visiting researcher at ETH in Switzerland, UB in Spain and ICL in London. My main position is senior research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research, but I also work part-time as adjunct Professor in process systems engineering at NTNU.  My research interests are equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamics in combination with mathematical modelling of processes in nature and industry. In Porelab, I am working with my colleagues to unravel the equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamic description of heterogeneous structures such as bubbles, droplets and films in porous media

My field of expertise is computational methods for coupled problems in geomechanics. This includes: multiphase flow in deformable porous media and constitutive modelling of geomaterials.  Currently, I am working on developing numerical models to simulate thermo-hydro-mechanical processes during freezing and thawing of soils.  The aim is to deliver a practical engineering tool for geotechnical design of infrastructures in cold regions. The problem relates to the fact that, in fine-grained soils, unfrozen water can exist at temperatures down to -70oC with cryogenic suction and other effects as a consequence. This results in dramatic water migration to the freezing fringe during a freezing period. This additional water must subsequently be drained out of the system during the thawing period. This water migration and drainage results in significant deformation of the soil system (frost heave and thawing settlement) and consequently it might cause serious damage on the infrastructure above.

Pattern forming processes that we observe in Nature have fascinated me for many years. Especially patterns formed by coupling of transport, growth and deformation. I often use experiments to study the small scale mechanisms underlying the processes. In PoreLab I will mainly use microfluidic and microscopic imaging tools, that I have developed, to study reactive and multiphase flow processes.

Per Arne Rikvold

Researcher, Department of Physics

University of Oslo (UiO)

Per Arne Rikvold joined PoreLab at The University of Oslo as a Researcher in 2018, after serving as Professor of Physics at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, since 1987. He received his B.Sc. (Cand. Mag.) and M.Sc. (Cand. Real.) in Physics from the University of Oslo. Subsequently, he spent two years as a Japanese Government research student at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. After further stays at the University of Oslo, University of Geneva in Switzerland, and Kernforschungsanlage Jülich in Germany, he received his Ph.D. in Physics from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1983. Before joining the faculty of Florida State University, he did a postdoc in Mechanical Engineering at State University of New York at Stony Brook and worked as a Senior Research Chemist with ARCO Chemical Company in suburban Philadelphia. While at Florida State University, he served several periods a Visiting Professor at The University of Tokyo, Kyoto Univeristy, McGill University, and Virginia Tech. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a Member of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

Dr. Rikvold’s research focuses on applications of equilibrium and non-equilibrium computational statistical mechanics to a wide range of problems. These include surface structures of porous hydrogels, structure and dynamics of interfaces driven through a medium by an external force, electrochemical adsorption processes, dynamics of magnetization reversal in thin films, network-theoretical analysis of electrical power grids, and topics in evolutionary ecology.
