ERE3.3Numerical modeling in geothermics
|Convener: Sandra Schumacher | Co-Conveners: Leni Scheck-Wenderoth , Wolfram Rühaak|
This session aims to be a platform for presentations regarding all kinds of numerical modelling in geothermics. It is open for studies of deep geothermal processes and near-surface applications alike.
Models can come from all phases of geothermal projects: prediction of geothermal potentials, optimization of borehole locations as well as the study of processes in existing geothermal installations. They can encompass all areas relevant for geothermics such as thermal, hydraulic, mechanical and chemical processes. Models about fracturing processes for Enhanced Geothermal Systems are invited as well.
Contributions can range from innovative model applications to the discussion of an improved way to integrate data as well as to the development of new numerical approaches.
This session should offer the possibility to discuss advances and difficulties in modelling geothermal processes and stimulate new ideas for future work.
