MIT GeoNumerics Group focuses on problems of geomechanics, particulary in the energy sector.

Our main focus

The MIT Geonumerics group is dedicated to the development and implementation of next generation numerical simulator technologies and algorithms as they apply to problems in geoscience, particularly those involving permeable rock and complex multi-phase fluid flows. Such characteristics are key when simulating grain scale physics in oil reservoir rock and problems related to hydrates, carbon sequestration and coal seam gas.

Other areas of interest

Additional areas of interest relate to the simulation of deformable, fracturable and granula media. Of most interest is the development of integrated techniques for simulating solids and liquids together to model important geotechnical phenomena like sanding, bore hole stability and hydrofracturing.
