MNMs short course 2018

In the framework of the 6th ReGround meeting in Turin, organized by Politecnico di Torino,

the Groundwater Engineering Research Group is pleased to announce the short course:

MNMs: A MODELLING TOOL FOR NANOPARTICLE TRANSPORT IN POROUS MEDIA​

March 7th- March 9th 2018

The course provides an insight into the mechanisms governing colloidal transport in saturated porous media under both constant and transient hydro-chemical conditions, with eventual clogging of the porous medium.

Part of the course will be devoted to the practical use of MNMs 2018 (Micro- and Nanoparticle transport, filtration and clogging Model – Suite), a numerical tool for the analysis of laboratory tests of solute and nanoparticles transport and for the simulation of particle injection at pilot scale.

The course will start with an opening seminar on “Restoring aquifers contaminated by heavy metals using iron oxide nanoparticles: results and experiences from the H2020 REGROUND project” that will take place on the afternoon of March the 7th (14:00-16:00) at the venue:

SITI-Sede operativa, Corso Castelfidardo 30/a, 10129 TO

Deadline for registration is February the 26th.

The registration for the course is free of charge. However, each participant is asked to bring a poster about the research activity he/she is working on.

A poster exposition will be organized during the seminar and course.
