Session

11.09.2017     16:30–18:30

Title:
MS22
Numerical methods for the characterization of geothermal reservoirs • Part II
Type:
Subsurface models (cryoshpere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, pedoshpere)
Room:

An accurate description of geothermal reservoirs is of paramount importance to economically enhance the economic profitability of existing reservoirs and increase the attractiveness and sustainability of this renewable source of energy. The challenges related to the multiscale nature of fluid flow in hot rocks are coupled with complex phenomena like the presence of natural or induced fractures and faults. Issues like flow in fractured media, fracture generation, propagation, and stimulation, chemical reactions, multi-phase flows and data uncertainty have to be investigated with effective numerical tools. In this minisymposium we address new developments in mathematical models and numerical methods to overcome these challenges and make simulations more reliable and effective for the exploitation of geothermal energy.
