Coupling non-isothermal compositional gas liquid Darcy and free gas flows in collaboration with Nabil Birgle, Konstantin Brenner,
Yumeng Zhang and Laurent Trenty.
The objective of this project is to develop mathematical models, their discretizations and coupling algorithms
to simulate the coupling of a 3D gas liquid non-isothermal compositional Darcy flow with a non-isothermal compositional gas free flow.
Different models are considered including full-dimensional coupling a 3D flow in the Darcy region with
a 3D flow in the free flow region, and reduced model coupling a 3D flow in the Darcy region with
a 1D flow in the free flow region.
- The targeted application is the drying by suction at the interface between the repository and the ventilation galery
in a nuclear waste deposit.
- It has been the subject of the PhD of Yumeng Zhang funded by Andra and goes on with the postdoctoral project of Nabil Birgle.
- 2D simulation of the gas liquid two component (air and H2O) Darcy flow coupled with the two component
RANS gas flow. The gas saturation is shown in the porous medium above and the H2O gas molar fraction is shown in the free flow domain below
