LaMEP qualifies doctoral student for thesis in deep learning applied to oil industry

On last December 7th, Rafael Magalhães, researcher at LaMEP and current doctoral student at Postgraduate Program in Mechanical Engineering/UFPB, was qualified for his doctoral thesis. With a background in Computer Science, Rafael began to developing codes for deep learning training in the past, but now he conciliates his knowledge to reservoir modelling. Rafael’s work plan, entitled Deep Learning-Based Algorithms as…

LaMEP’s researcher is co-author of paper published in Soil & Tillage Research

Waldir Roque, retired professor of DCC/UFPB and active collaborator at LaMEP has co-authored the paper X-ray microtomography analysis of representative elementary volume (REV) of soil morphological and geometrical properties, published in Soil & Tillage Research. The paper is intended to study macroporous characteristics of Ferralsol Rhodic soils.

LaMEP publishes paper at the Journal of Applied Mathematics

In collaboration with Prof. Jesus da Mota, researcher at Federal University of Goiás, Prof. Aparecido de Souza had the paper Multiple Traveling Waves for Dry Forward Combustion Through a Porous Medium published at the SIAM’s Journal of Applied Mathematics da SIAM. The paper studies the problem of the combustion front propagated over porous media, a relevant issue for improving thermal oil recovery processes.
