Title:Thermohaline flows in fractured porous media
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Gabriel Wittum, University of Frankfurt
Abstract Link:
Density driven and thermohaline flows can show convection rolls, i.e. a kind of simplified vortex formation. This plays a role in the computation of these flows in fractured porous media. We simulate the flows using an adaptive finite volume algorithm. For the representation of fractures, two approaches are used, a full-dimensional and one with reduced dimension. We derive a criterion for the validity of the simplified representation and present an algorithm using adaptive dimensional representation.
