In applications involving heterogeneous materials, such as flow in porous media, the fundamental parameters of the underlying mathematical model may vary on two or more significantly different length scales. The unfortunate implication is that the fine-scale structure, which is infeasible to model directly, has a significant effect on the coarse-scale properties of the model's solution, the properties that are most commonly studied. Consequently the investigation of the interaction, influence and treatment of multiple scales is a vital area of current research. In this minisymposium new results, which address these issues, are presented for the modeling of flow in porous media.
Those with an interest in multi-scale problems relating to flow in porous media, and thus, researchers working in this rather large field (e.g. petroleum reservoirs, ground water and contaminant modeling) should find these talks interesting. Many aspects of this research are also relevant to other applications in which multiple scales are naturally present, such as composite materials and reactor modeling.
