About

Professor Michael Edwards' areas of expertise include:

  • Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations
  • Reservoir Simulation Methods for Petroleum, Oil and Gas Recovery, Aquifer Remediation, Carbon Sequestration
  • Locally conservative finite-volume-element methods for computing flow fields in heterogeneous media with rough coefficients due to the medium and or the grid.
  • Elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equation approximation including single and multiphase flow techniques.
  • Methods apply to oil and gas production, aquifer remediation, carbon sequestration, porous media problems with medium effects including full-tensor permeability fields, faults and fractures.
  • Darcy-Flux Approximation: Control-volume distributed multipoint flux approximation CVD-MPFA.
  • Convective flux approximation for fluid and gas dynamics: Higher resolution upwind and centred methods, multidimensional upwind methods (Multi-D).
  • Fracture modelling.
  • Discretization dependent structured-unstructured gridding techniques.
  • Multiscale Finite-volume methods (MSFV)
  • Upscaling Methods.
  • Adaptive grid methods
