The main objective of the TheMSES project is establish the mathematical models and numerical methods required to assess and develop subsurface energy storage. Project research questions includes interaction of flow, mechanics and temperature effects, upscaling, non-standard flow models and linear and non-linear solvers.
The TheMSES projcet is conducted in the Porous Media group at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bergen. The group includes approximately 30 faculty, researchers, post doc, PhD students and MSc students. The TheMSES project involve all faculty in the porous media group, in addition to 4 PhD students and 2 post docs. TheMSES is funded by the ‘Excellent Research’ (Norwegian: Toppforsk) scheme of the Norwegian Research council.
