Article
Full-text available
Transport and particulate processes are ubiquitous in environmental, industrial and biological applications, often involving complex geometries and porous media. In this work we present a general population balance model for particle transport at the pore-scale, including aggregation, breakage and surface deposition. The various terms in the equati...

Article
Full-text available
Porous and heterogeneous materials are found in many applications from composites, membranes, chemical reactors, and other engineered materials to biological matter and natural subsurface structures. In this work we propose an integrated approach to generate, study and upscale transport equations in random and periodic porous structures. The geomet...
Chapter
Transport and deposition of nanoparticles in saturated porous media is a topic of great importance in several fields of science and engineering. Colloidal transport is a peculiar multiscale problem, as pore-scale phenomena have an important impact on the transport at the larger scales. This study provides an overview of several numerical techniques...

Article
We highlight some mechanical aspects of the coupling among deformation, fluid flow, structural evolution, and reorientation of fibres in fibre-reinforced, hydrated, soft biological tissues. For our purposes, we elaborate a model in which the tissue's interstitial fluid is inviscid and obeys Darcy's law, and the solid constituents are transversely i...
Article
In the upscaling from pore- to continuum (Darcy) scale, reaction and deposition phenomena at the solid-liquid interface of a porous medium have to be represented by macroscopic reaction source terms. The effective rates can be computed, in the case of periodic media, from three-dimensional microscopic simulations of the periodic cell. Several compu...
Article
Full-text available
In this work, the influence of pore space geometry on solute transport in porous media is investigated performing computational fluid dynamics pore-scale simulations of fluid flow and solute transport. The three-dimensional periodic domains are obtained from three different pore structure configurations, namely, face-centered-cubic (fcc), body-cent...
Article
The injection of zero valent iron particles is a promising approach for the remediation of contaminated aquifer systems. In this framework microscale numerical simulations are a powerful tool to investigate transport and deposition of colloidal suspensions. The present analysis compare different porous media structures and highlights the role playe...
Presentation
Full-text available
This presentation gives a brief explanation of the guidelines of my PhD research topic: micro-scale numerical simulations are used to extrapolate accurate macro-scale models to study solute/particles transport in porous media. The final goal is that of understand the fate of harmful particles in groundwater systems, in order to design effective rem...
