Special Issue Information
Modeling fluid flows through fractured and/or deformable porous media remains an interesting but challenging topic in the geo-energy field. Success in geo-energy resources extraction, energy storage, CO2 geosequestration, and understanding ore-forming processes relies strongly upon the accurate modeling of single-/multi-phase fluid flow through porous media. The rapid advancement of physics-driven and data-driven approaches provides us with a rare opportunity to simulate and comprehend essential interplay between fluid flow, heat transfer, stress perturbation, chemical reaction, and pore/permeability evolution. The research in fluid dynamics modeling provides high support in the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and the efficient development and utilization of geo-energy resources.
This Special Issue titled “Fluid Dynamics Modeling in Porous Media” is intended to report innovative contributions to fluid dynamics modeling regarding numerical approaches, case studies, and data analytics, which may help advance our understanding of complex fluid flow behaviors underground. Our interests focus on, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Reactive fluid/heat flow in (deformable) porous media;
- Development of geothermal energy and hydrocarbons;
- Enhanced/engineered geothermal systems;
- Fault slip in response to fluid injection;
- Geo-sequestration of carbon dioxide;
- Underground energy storage;
- Ore-forming fluid evolution;
- Proppant migration through fracture networks;
- Data-driven modeling.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
