Mathematical and Numerical Modelling of Process-Structure Interaction in Fractured Geothermal Systems

Project description

Mathematical models for high-temperature geothermal systems

Complex dynamics such as boiling of geothermal fluids and deformation of fractured rock, resulting from the development and production of high-temperature geothermal resources, are not well understood. The EU-funded MaPSI project will provide the necessary mathematical models and simulation technology to assess subsurface process-structure interaction in the context of hydraulic and thermal stimulation during the development and production of high-temperature geothermal resources. The project will develop pioneering mathematical and numerical models to simulate multiphase flow and phase-change thermo-poroelastic media with deforming and propagating fractures. MaPSI will advance expertise and improve understanding of coupled processes in high-temperature geothermal systems development and production aiming at sustainable resource exploitation.
