Prediction of velocity distribution from the statistics of pore structure in 3D porous media via high-fidelity pore-scale simulation (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)Fluid flow and particle transport through porous media are determined by the geometry of the host medium itself. Despite the fundamental importance of the velocity distribution in controlling early-time and late-time ...
Modeling flow encountering abrupt topography using hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin projection methods (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)In this work novel high-order hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) projection methods are further developed for ocean dynamics and geophysical fluid predictions. We investigate the effects of the HDG stabilization ...
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)This thesis studies the effects of heterogeneous information on traffic equilibria and the resulting travel costs (both individual and social) when commuters make departure time choices to cross an unreliable bottleneck ...
