Modeling in Heterogeneous and Non-Isotropic Materials

Modeling flows and contaminant transport in heterogeneous and non-isotropic materials is difficult. The best techniques use a combination of adaptive grids and specially designed discretization methods. The speakers will present some of the latest results for adaptive logically rectangular grids and finite-volume type discretizations. In particular, adapting the grid to the flow or material properties tends to produce a rough grid, so the discretization method must be robust for non-smooth grids.
