Institute for Scientific Computing

Institute for Scientific Computing at the University of WyomingThe Institute for Scientific Computation (ISC) is part of the Mathematics Department at the University of Wyoming. The ISC is an interdisciplinary research center devoted to the application of computer technology in mathematics as well as other disciplines which may benefit from computer simulations.

The objectives of ISC are: 1) to provide support for campus research groups at UW in scientific computation, including numerical modeling of physical and engineering problems, numerical analysis, and algorithm development; 2) to train undergraduate and graduate students in areas of applied mathematics and computing technology; 3) to help establish interdisciplinary research teams in applied sciences involving large-scale scientific computation; 4) to help in the use of scientific visualization tools for large-scale computational data; 5) to promote collaborative work with industry and various research teams in the world.

The ISC has state-of-the-art computing resources to facilitate faculty research. Researchers have direct access to a Linux Cluster as well other unix-based computer equipment.

Institute for Subsurface Flow at the University of Wyoming

Institute for Subsurface Flow

The Center for Fundamentals of Subsurface Flow (CFSF) advances scientific understanding of subsurface flows and develops the tools and knowledge necessary to predict its behavior - an essential component of both carbon recovery and storage. The results of the center's fundamental research, in the form of published experimental data and predictive modeling software, provide key insight into energy problems significant to the State of Wyoming, the nation and the world.

Because multiphase and multicomponent flow and transport phenomena are still poorly understood, there are limited strategies for both hydrocarbon extraction and geological storage of CO2. CFSF has the unique ability - thanks to University of Wyoming faculty expertise, research alliances, and private and public funding - to ensure present and future access to unconventional oil and gas reserves, as well as long-term storage of environmentally damaging fluids.

The results of CFSF activities are far-reaching: graduates of affiliated energy programs will use their knowledge to make improvements in a variety of settings, while the center in itself will be able to provide services and real-world applications for its ongoing, fundamental research. The center's current research, such as the principles behind use and sequestration of CO2 in enhanced oil recovery, is already being utilized by other research centers at UW and will be subject to broader field-scale testing and potential regulatory adoption.
