Summary:

The ERC MILEPOST project will transform our ability to analyse and predict the behaviour of a wide range of pore-scale processes governing the macroscopic behaviour of complex subsurface systems and open up new horizons for science in other areas, e.g porosity controlled in polymers and bioprinting.

Reference Number: 695070

Funder: European Research Council (ERC)

Grant: €3m

Duration: September 2016– August 2021

Project Partners: Heriot-Watt University

Academic and Industrial Partners: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

 

Description


We combine expertise and integrate ground-breaking work in:

(i) additive manufacturing to produce three-dimensional replicas of porous structures;

(ii) tools to embed sensors to determine the in-vivo propagation of fronts (pressure, concentrations, pH) within complex structures; and

(iii) novel high-fidelity in-silico pore-scale models coupling relative permeability functions and critical saturations with compositional changes and validated using virtual reality tools.

The ERC MILEPOST project will transform our ability to analyse and predict the behavior of a wide range of pore-scale processes governing the macroscopic behaviour of complex subsurface systems and open up new horizons for science in other areas, e.g. porosity controlled in polymers and bioprinting.

 

Project Updates:


05-08 June 2017- The 18th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM2017), presented "Fabrication of three-dimensional micro-structures in glass substrates by laser micro-machining and welding".
