PoreLab course 1: FYS4465 at UiO / NTNU code pending
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.
PoreLab course 2 : FYS4420/FYS9420 at UiO or PG8605/TPG4565 at NTNU
Experimental condensed matter/petroleum physics
Background assumed: Thermodynamics and/or fundamental statistical physics, fluid mechanics and electromagnetism. A first course in experimental physics/reservoir engineering, including elementary uncertainty calculations. Goal: The students learn several experimental techniques in condensed matter and/or petroleum physics and they learn how to write project based scientific reports. The course will support theoretical and numerical course in PoreLab.
