Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows

Applications are invited to work on the development of advanced modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes applicable to porous-media Simulations can include flows in porous media with the direct pore simulations as well as Darcy flows. Read more

Mass transport and interaction of ions in porous media with a prospect of energy storage

Understanding the mass transport mechanisms in micro channels and porous media is key in designing many engineering processes. The aim of this project is to investigate the mechanisms of fluid flow through porous materials with different morphology considering the interactions of ions with solid surfaces. Read more

Modelling and Experiments on Subsurface Engineering Applications

Porous media research has a very wide range of applications such as subsurface energy. To understand the subsurface energy systems, such as geological carbon storage and hydrogen storage, it is important to physics of multiphase flow and transport in porous media. Read more

Characterisation of the porous media used in PEM fuel cells

Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells are one of the most promising clean power conversion technology that has been increasingly adopted by several countries to reduce the emission of the greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

Foam improved oil recovery

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure. Read more

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

Droplet interactions with functional surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes, from preventing virus laden droplets passing through face masks to reducing the build-up of ice on the surfaces of flying aircraft. Read more

Feasibility study of mineral mining from subsurface reservoirs for renewable energy storage

Critical minerals such as alkali metals play an important role in batteries and fuel cells. Their demand is expected to increase as more of the world turns to electric vehicles and renewable energy storage systems. Read more

Multi-scale characterisation of the subsurface system for decarbonation energy (Digital Rock Manchester)

The subsurface system can act as a large-scale, low-cost and safe system for huge storage for either energy or waste, which provides provide important solutions to carbon management in order to tackle the global climate crisis and meet the Net-Zero target. Read more

Fluid-rock interaction and its influence on rock mechanical properties

Rock and fluid interactions alternate the fluid flow and mechanical properties of porous material and thus play a significant role in many aspects of subsurface engineering application, for example CO2 geological storage and enhanced hydrocarbon recovery. Read more
