Scholarship Description: Representing complex heterogeneous structures of rocks and capturing their influence on complex thermal-mechanical processes occurring during hydrocarbon generation and production are important for practical use of simulation tools in oil & gas industries. Practical numerical simulation needs to be able to handle large models in terms of the number of simulation parameters to be solved on a huge number of spatially and temporary discretised domains. From the scale point of view, it needs to have an ability to homogenise and upscale/downscale models used to simulate processes on basin, field, wellbore, laboratory, grain and sub-grain scales. The physical behaviour is generally time dependent as well, and it needs to be correctly captured for large variety of time scales – from millennia to microseconds. All these make homogenisation and upscaling methods (HUMs) for Finite/Discrete Element codes very important and powerful items within the framework used for numerical simulation of oil & gas exploration and production processes.
