Research performed by Abdellah AMRI.

This work concerns studies on water-gas flow simulation in a deep geologic repository (DGR), focusing on parametric sensitivity and  uncertainties of flow processes to gas-entry pressure (Pe), hysteresis, and the dependence of the source term to water saturation. The new implemented models will be tested on different in-situ gas injection experiments. Finally large scales (time and space) simulations of the gas transfer in the DGR will be conducted.
