Hierarchical Simulation of the Spatiotemporal Evolution of Heterogeneous Biofilms and their Impact on the Flow Pattern and Mass Transport in 3-D Porous Media

George Kapellos, Terpsichori Alexiou, Stavros Pavlou, Alkiviades Payatakes & George Kapellos
A computer-aided simulator has been developed for the prediction of the pattern of evolution and the rate of growth of heterogeneous biofilms within the pore space of 3-D virtual porous media (core-scale). The biofilm itself is considered as a heterogeneous porous material that exhibits a hierarchy of length scales. A recently developed theoretical model, which takes into account fundamental geometric and physicochemical properties of the biofilm at the cell- and molecular-scales, is used to calculate...
