Modeling unstable gas infiltration through initially saturated geomaterials

Modeling unstable gas infiltration through a saturated rock formation is a paramount issue in a wide range of engineering problems especially in the fields of energy storage, greenhouse gas sequestration and radioactive waste disposal.
The project aims to develop and implement a new numerical approach for multi-phase fluid flow through porous media allowing to capture complex topological changes in liquid-gas interactions as fingering,
pinching and coalescence of one phase against the other and to investigate their effects on the mechanical response of the porous skeleton.
