SINTEF is a research institute without teaching activities by itself. Instead, we supervise master and PhD students. This not only allows us to explore new research ideas but is also central in our efforts to make open-source reservoir simulation tools.
The Matlab Reservoir Simulation Toolbox is our open-source test-bench for new methodologies and contains a comprehensive set of routines and data structures for reading, representing, processing, and visualizing unstructured grids, with particular emphasis on the corner-point formate used within the petroleum industry. The toolbox also has various flow and transport solvers for single-phase, two-phase, and black-oil flow. We have several research challenges that are suitable for students:
We offer supervision at NTNU and at the universities of Bergen and Oslo. For all the projects listed above, you must work in close collaboration with the GeoScale team and we expect you to do quite a bit of programming.
