Safe and sustainable exploitation of geo-energy resources requires not only a comprehensive evaluation of the performance and economics of the corresponding projects but also the assessments of the associated risks, including the risk of induced seismicity. Indeed, seismic events may arise from the reactivation of natural faults and fractures...

A hybrid material point/finite volume method for the numerical simulation of shallow water waves caused by large dynamic deformations in the bathymetry is presented. The proposed model consists of coupling the nonlinear shallow water equations for the water flow and a dynamic elastoplastic system for the seabed deformation. As a constitutive...

The pressure-free two-fluid model (PFTFM) is a recent reformulation of the one-dimensional two-fluid model (TFM) for stratified incompressible flow in ducts (including pipes and channels), in which the pressure is eliminated through intricate use of the volume constraint. The disadvantage of the PFTFM was that the volumetric flow rate had to...

Elliptic differential operators describe a wide range of processes in mechanics relevant to geo-energy applications. Extensively used in reservoir modeling, the Finite Volume Method with TPFA can be consistently applied to discretize only a specific type of application under severe assumptions. In this paper, we introduce a positivity...

A smoothed embedded finite-volume modeling (sEFVM) method is presented for faulted and fractured heterogeneous poroelastic media. The method casts a fully coupled strategy to treat the coupling between fault slip mechanics, deformation mechanics, and fluid flow equations. This ensures the stability and consistency of the simulation results,...

The demand for accurate and efficient simulations in order to test the geomechanical effects is a reality for the entire geoscience community. The motivation that arises from that need is the development and the evolution of modelling methods to study these effects. Deep understanding of any problem in fine scale is crucial, especially when it...

The Dutch/New Zealand based aerospace company Dawn aerospace has developed a 0.5N green bi-propellant propulsion system for use in CubeSat applications called the PM200. This thruster uses gaseous nitrous oxide and propylene as propellants. Currently, the burn time of this thruster is limited to 10 seconds after which cool down of the thruster...

We are concerned with the numerical solution of a linear transport problem with nonzero divergence velocity field that originates from the spectral energy balance equation describing the evolution of wind waves and swells in coastal seas. The discretization error of the commonly used first-order upwind finite difference and first-order vertex...

We propose a multiscale finite volume method (MSFV) for simulation of coupled flow-deformation in heterogeneous porous media under elastic deformation (i.e., poroelastic model). The fine-scale fully resolved system of equations is obtained based on a conservative finite-volume method in which the displacement and pore pressure unknowns are...

Agragrians in the Dutch Wadden sea region struggles with salinizing farmlands. Acacia Water's project Spaarwater enabled agrarians to measure salt concentrations in the ditches of their land using their mobile phone. All these measurements would ideally be used to evaluate the effects of salinization mitigation measures and to predict water...

Efficient heat exploitation strategies from geothermal systems demand for accurate and efficient simulation of coupled flow-heat equations on large-scale heterogeneous fractured formations. While the accuracy depends on honouring high-resolution discrete fractures and rock heterogeneities, specially avoiding excessive upscaled quantities, the...

If secondary hydrocarbon recovery methods, like water flooding, fail because of the occurrence of viscous fingering one can turn to an enhanced oil recovery method (EOR) like the injection of foam. The generation of foam in a porousmedium can be described by a set of partial differential equations with strongly non-linear functions, which impose...

The augmented Lagrangian (AL) preconditioner and its variant have been successfully applied to solve saddle point systems arising from the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations discretized by the finite element method. Attractive features are the purely algebraic construction and robustness with respect to the Reynolds number and mesh renement....

An optimization approach is presented that can be used to find the optimal source term distribution in order to represent a high-fidelity vortex-generator (VG) induced flow field on a coarse mesh. The ap- proach employs the continuous adjoint of the problem, from which an exact sensitivity is calculated and used in combination with a trust...

When drilling for oil or gas, wells are typically constructed using a conventional or telescopic well design. After a section of the well has been drilled, a steel casing (or liner) is inserted into the hole preventing the collapse of the hole. The next well section has a smaller diameter as it’s casing must pass through the previously installed...

In this thesis, it is investigated how the blood flow changes in different physiological situations, using a one-dimensional model, that describes the blood flow in compliant vessels. The one-dimensional model, that describes the blood flow, is derived based on the physical laws of conservation of momentum and conservation of mass. A high...

When modelling fluid fl ow in subsurface, the impact of solid deformation on fluid fl ow is often oversimplified/neglected in reservoir simulators. It is assumed that solid volume/s-tate of stress is a function of fluid pressure, while the opposite effect is not considered. This assumption is made mainly to reduce computational costs and...

Erosion is a phenomenon present in several industrial processes. In dredging, the jetting of sand in drag heads erodes the sand bed. In construction of offshore infrastructure such as wind turbines, oil and gas production units, marine pipelines, erosion of material near the foundations can put the stability of structures at stake. Furthermore,...

In this paper we are concerned with distributed optimal control problems governed by a second-order linear and semi-linear elliptic partial differential equations (PDE), where the control is distributed on the domain ?. The semi-linear elliptic boundary value problem is analysed by proving the existence of a unique solution and optimal control...
