Abstract

Multiscale modeling and simulation techniques are transforming the way we can address questions regarding design, characterization, and optimization of novel materials. Advanced computational models that incorporate realistic geometries of porous media can be used as tools to predict flow and transport phenomena. Recent developments in mesoscopic and pore-scale modeling include workflows that combine experimental information and direct modeling into an integrated multiscale approach. This paper surveys the progress, challenges and future directions in predictive modeling and simulation of multiphysics phenomena in porous media.
