STOMP

Short Courses & Training

STOMP Short Courses are taught by code developers and provide new users with an introduction to applying the simulator. The course combines lectures and laboratories; where students are guided through example simulation problems designed to demonstrate the simulator's features.

Lecture topics address documentation, governing equations, constitutive relations, numerical solution schemes, algorithms, applications, parallel computing, and future directions for the simulator.

During the laboratory sessions, students work in pairs or individually on workstation computers, affording hands-on experience with the simulator. Simulation problems vary in complexity,and include saturated and unsaturated flow, solute transport, salt-water brine, nonaqueous phase liquid flow, volatile dense nonaqueous phase liquid flow, partition tracers, carbon dioxide sequestration, enhanced oil recovery, and nonisothermal coupled thermal and hydrologic transport.

Courses can be tailored to a particular application area if there is sufficient interest.  If you are interested in hosting a short course, please contact Mark White.
