Research Interests

His main focus in reasearch is the numerical and experimental investigation of coupled processes relevant to geoscientific applications. It is important to Dr. McDermott that the areas he works in have a real relevance to actual geo-engineering problems. A significant part of his research time is spent in the further development of the object oriented code GeoSys/RockFlow for the simulation of coupled processes. This code is open source and available for research purposes. His work has been applied in the following areas

  • Flow, heat and mass transport in 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.
