Dr. Marios Valavanides is professor of Hydraulics and Porous Media Flow at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of West Attica, Athens, Greece, and he is currently visiting the Institute of Applied Mechanics (MIB) at the University of Stuttgart. For the next three months (from January to April 2022) he will be collaborating with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Holger Steeb and his group to deploy the project 'Laboratory validation of Flow-Dependent Relative Permeability Scaling for steady-state two-phase flow in micro-fluidic pore networks'.

The objective of this research visit is to run a systematic study to validate the provisions of the DeProF theory in order to gain a deeper understanding of the mutations observed in the interstitial flow structure; the scope herein is two-fold: improve flow efficiency (energy transition) and improve core analysis protocols, rock typing etc.

The research work is supported by two complementary grants: the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD - 5752335 Research Stays for University Academics and Scientists, 2021) and the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA Grants & Scholarship recipients). The local research group is supported by fellow researchers from the Department of Civil Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Athens, Greece.
