Modeling of Multiscale Phenomena in Porous Media (Part I of IV)

One of the most important issues facing subsurface modelers is how to design systems of equations that incorporate significant physical phenomena over a wide range of length scales, yet are also amenable to practical computation. Major thrusts of current research include derivations of complex multiphase models from first principles, analytical and computational approaches for deterministic and stochastic multiscale representations, theoretical and computational techniques for evaluating effective upscaled parameters, and comparison with results of controlled experiments. The speakers will address a variety of aspects of these questions.
