GeoDict & DuMux

We use flexible software tools to test new ideas and model complex processes. In particular, some widely used software tools are employed and their integration is pursued in the proposal. The software package that is used for generating porous micro-structure geometries is GeoDict. This flexible software tool allows generating realistic porous microstructures with different microscopic properties. It is intensively used in various applications and by many industries. For simulation at the macroscopic scale (whenever is necessary), we use DuMux, an open source software that allows multiscale, multiphysics simulations of coupled flow and transport process in porous media. These software packages play an important role to move theoretical ideas and methods to applications quickly.
