Gas Transport Simulations in Partially Saturated Argillaceous Rocks

Start date: 01/10/2019
End date: 30/09/2023
University: University of Bern
Promotor: Sergey Chukarov

Research performed by Jerry Peprah OWUSU.

The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a model based link between the molecular scale diffusivity of gaseous molecules in confinement at saturated and partially saturated conditions obtained by MD simulations and the macroscopic transport coefficients (measured in experiments) by 3D pore scale modelling of gas transport taking into account the explicate geometry of clay particles and pore space.
