Probabilistic model for diffusion through porous micro-structures
Series: Program in Applied Mathematics Brown Bag Seminar
Location: Math 402
Presenter: Colin Clark, Program in Applied Mathematics, University of Arizona
Laboratory observations of the transport of solutes through a porous medium frequently suggest that the diffusion is non-fickian. This talk will present a numerical and computational framework for simulating the trajectories of a passive solute through the complex geometry / topology of a pore-scale sample. Data from the simulations are used to develop a low-parameter probabilistic model to understand and predict the extent of the anomalous diffusion.
