Confirmation seminar presented by Marion Artigaut.

Transport processes in granular media are ubiquitous within the natural environment and built infrastructure. Examples include groundwater flow, contaminant spreading, filtration for separation of two media, and erosion. Understanding, modelling and characterising transport processes remains a challenge due to the wide variation in the spatial and temporal scale of the differing processes. This study will develop a novel dynamic Pore Network (PN) model of deforming granular media. Dynamic PN modelling opens the door to more complex studies of the dynamic transport processes in granular media and have the potential to quantify the stochastic nature of these transport processes.

About Confirmation Seminars

The purpose of the confirmation milestone is to ensure that the candidate receives appropriate feedback in relation to the viability and progress of the thesis project and that the resources required to complete the program of research within the recommended timeframe are available. It is also an opportunity to ensure that the candidate has demonstrated the capacity and capability to successfully complete the thesis in a timely manner.
