Martin Schneider: Modeling concepts for coupling free flow with porous-media flow
Abstract: Exchange processes across a porous-medium free-flow interface occur in a wide range of environmental, technical, and bio-mechanical systems. In the course of these processes, flow dynamics in the porous domain and in the free-flow domain exhibit strong coupling, often controlled by mechanisms at the common interfaces. Such processes need to be analyzed on small scales and new scale-bridging modeling concepts need to be developed for an accurate description also on larger scales (REV scale). Recent developments within the Collaborative Research Center "Interface-Driven Multi-Field Processes in Porous Media – Flow, Transport and Deformation" and the Cluster of Excellence SimTech at the University Stuttgart regarding such aspects for coupled free-flow and porous-medium flow systems will be presented in this talk.
This talk is part of the Mechanics Lunch Seminar series. Bring-your-own-lunch and lots of questions.
