Advanced drying theory of capillary porous media from high-performance-computing pore network simulations
French National Research Agency (ANR)
  • Funder: French National Research Agency (ANR)Project code: ANR-16-CE92-0030
  • Funder Contribution: 154,540 EUR
Description
_x000D_ Drying of porous media is central to many environmental and engineering applications. In this context, this project aims at performing a major breakthrough in the modelling of the drying process in capillary porous media. The work will be based on a combination of state of the art pore network modelling, pore network simulations and new experiments._x000D_ _x000D_ Two and three equations continuum models will be developed taking into account the non-local equilibrium condition of the vapour and from the distinction between the percolating and non-percolating liquid clusters. The secondary capillary structures corresponding to the liquid trapped in variou...
