Department of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems

Teaching and Education

One of LH2's primary aims is to provide comprehensive, high-quality interdisciplinary training, predominantly for students of the study programmes Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering and Simulation Technology as well as the international master's programmes WAREM and COMMAS.

General Information

The courses deal with the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, the modelling of hydrosystems, the description of exchange and transport processes in flows; more advanced lectures present the theory and numerics of flow and transport in porous media. In addition to the lectures, which are held in German as well as, to a large extent, in English, various seminars are organised in co-operation with other faculties, e.g. as part of SRC SimTech. In addition, the department aims to attract students from other disciplines such as mathematics, computer sciences or process engineering.

Dear students,

Thank you for your interest in carrying out a student assignment at our department.
Below, you can find the list of exciting topics with corresponding contact people.

Topics

  • Upscaling of two-phase flow in a pipe or in porous media under slip condition.
    Supervisor: Jun.-Prof. Ph.D. Carina Bringedal
  • Applied simulations of reactive transport in porous media, in particular induced calcite precipitation (ICP), and the associated changes in the medium's properties unsing exsisting models.
    Supervisor: Dr.-Ing. Johannes Hommel

  • Comparing simulation results to experimental data or modeling investigations to asses different possible, realistic application scenarios of ICP. Limited experimental investigations of ICP. 
    Supervisor: Dr.-Ing. Johannes Hommel
