Simulating multiphase flow in gradient porous media using invasion percolation

Research on immiscible flow in a heterogeneous porous media has been an active area of research, particularly due to its close relationship with hydrology and petroleum engineering. Specifically, the modelling of oil migration and non-aqueous phase liquid migration in groundwater is a major challenge due to the multi-scale heterogeneous nature of the porous media.In this project we will develop efficient numerical method to simulate the fluid-fluid displacement process in porous media with a gradient in grain size, and gain fundamental …

Bayesian optimisation of radial-inflow turbines

High-density fluids are commonly use in renewable applications, and in particular for low-to-medium renewable power cycles using Organic Rankine cycles (ORC). The optimisation of the turbo-expander, a key component in these cycles, is of critical importance for robust design.This project aims at optimising such turbo-expander for ORC using Bayesian techniques that allow for uncertainties to be accounted for in the optimisation process. This is an important aspect while considering the strong impact of uncertainties on the fluid flow properties and …
