Project Description

The manner in which one fluid displaces another in porous materials is key to our understanding of many natural and engineering processes, including infiltration of rainwater into the soil, reinforcing ceramic materials, and processing of raw sugar. This project aims to build a computational model of fluid infiltration in a simple representation of a 3D porous medium. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh4MwYPAicw
