Meshless techniques for anisotropic diffusion

Annamaria Mazzia, Giorgio Pini, Flavio Sartoretto
2014 Applied Mathematics and Computation  
The latter would allow better use of parallel computers, since time-stepping is essentially a serial process. Moreover, it would be good for the methods to be of high order accuracy.  ...  Our objective is to simulate transport processes over very long time periods, as needed in, e.g., the simulation of geologic carbon sequestration.  ...  We show how to solve the equations using a global implicit approach in an efficient way, and we present the derived computational results.  ...

The role of hydromechanical coupling in fractured rock engineering

Jonny Rutqvist, Ove Stephansson
2003 Hydrogeology Journal  
In the early 1960s, the coupling between hydraulic and mechanical processes in fractured rock started to receive wide attention.  ...  Moreover, the advent of the computer technology in the 1970s made possible the integration of nonlinear processes such as stress-permeability coupling and rock mass failure into coupled HM analysis.  ...  In a partially coupled approach, the pressure pattern obtained from reservoir simulators is used in a stress-strain analysis to compute the compaction of the reservoir and the subsidence of the land surface  ...
