Low permeability media and nanoporous materials from characterisation to modelling: can we do it better?

IFPEN / Rueil-Malmaison - 9-11 June 2015


Already confirmed keynote speakers

>> Andrew Aplin, Durham Univ., UK
>> Marc-Olivier Coppens, Univ. College London, UK

Main topics

  • Characterisation at pore scale.
  • Competing physicochemical processes involved in fluid transport mechanisms at pore scale.
  • Low to very-low permeability media and nanoporous materials at macroscopic scale: impact of heterogeneities on fluid flow, homogeneisation techniques, etc.
