SFF PoreLab - what we do and why
By Professor Eirik Grude Flekkøy, PoreLab, UiO
The hydrodynamics of real things are very often cases of flow in porous media. It could be a pollutant spreadining a ground water reservoir, the airflow in a raindeers nose or the sap rising in a flower.
The mission statement of PoreLab, a two-node center shared between UiO and NTNU, is to understand such processes, and provide unified descriptions of them where possible. The talk will be about the center itself and some of the topics we focus on.
