Porous Media Flows
Prof. Voronov has contributed significantly to the field of modeling fluid flow and mass transport in complex porous media. Highlighted above is a universal model that describes simulation and experimental studies alike, done by other researchers. Additionally, Prof. Voronov has developed new numerical methods for this application, to be implemented on supercomputers.
