Anja Raznjevic – Modeling dispersion of methane

Blog written by Anja Raznjevic Modeling dispersion of methane (CH4) on the small scale is my main research topic and I work at Wageningen University (WUR), the Netherlands. For simulations I use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model called MicroHH, developed by Chiel van Heerwaarden et al. (for more information see http://microhh.org/), which simulates turbulent flows….
