Random sphere packings Discussions on the subject of sphere packing go back to Kepler’s conjecture (1611) although all the major results were published during the last 20 years. This project investigates the packing density of bi-dispersed systems using simulations as well as experiments. The experiment uses density matching between the spheres and the medium to avoid the granular convection.

Thermo-responsive polymers in porous media Oil recovery can be enhanced by polymer flooding as it shuts off the high permeability channels in heterogeneous reservoirs. Thermo-responsive polymers can be used in a more targeted manner and therefore reduce the amount polymer needed. Initial experiments and discussions about thermo-responsive polymer are presented in this talk.
