In the past few years I have been working on the non-equilibrium gas transport in ultra-tight porous media, with application in shale gas extraction. The fundings I have secured in the University of Strathclyde (UK) are listed below.
Now we are developing accurate and efficient numerical method (GSIS=General Synthetic Iterative Scheme) to solve multi-scale gas flow problems described by the Boltzmann equation, from the continuum regime to free molecular flow regime. In our preprint arXiv:1906.05280 we showed that the GSIS can (i) remove the restriction on the numerical cell size and (ii) ensure correct steady-state solution to be found within dozens of iterations. Both properties are critical and essential to tackle multi-scale flow simulation problems. We will focus on both the algorithm development and its wide range of industrial applications.
