New math model examines mixing fronts in porous media flows

Analyzing what happens where interfaces meet and mix is essential toward understanding and controlling fundamental mechanisms in both natural and industrial systems. By considering the reaction front of heterogeneous fluid ...

Formula could shed light on global climate change

Wright State University researchers have discovered a formula that accurately predicts the rate at which soil develops from the surface to the underlying rock, a breakthrough that could answer questions about greenhouse gases ...

Microtomography of multiphase flows in porous media

Multiphase flow in porous media occurs in many practical situations including carbon dioxide capture and storage, enhanced oil recovery, remediation of polluted ground, and soil science.

Modelling seismics and explosions

Researchers at the University of Sydney are developing mathematical models that can help in reducing rock fracturing and soil liquefaction caused by natural or man-made disasters.
