Research Interest

Hismainfocus in reasearch is thenumerical and experimentalinvestigation of coupled processes relevant to geoscientific applications. It is important toDr. McDermottthat the areas he works inhave a real relevance to actual geo-engineering problems.A significant part of his research time is spent in thefurther development of the object oriented code GeoSys/RockFlow for the simulation of coupled processes. This code isopen source and available for research purposes.His work has been applied in the following areas

  • Flow, heat and mass transportin the subsurface.
  • Reactive flow in the subsurface.
  • Reservoir simulation.
  • Coupled processes in Geo-reservoirs.
  • Two phase flow.
  • Further development of GeoSys/RockFlow.
  • Introduction of Geoscience knowledge into planning and development.
