Bots in Rocks: Design construction and testing of Novel multi-sensor devices for Geomechanical monitoring

  • Supervisor: David Flynn (Heriot-Watt University)
  • Sponsoring Company: Maersk
  • PhD Student: Jamie Blanche

    This research project aims to develop a laboratory-based, nano-scale system to determine environmental parameters analogous to those found in oil and gas reservoirs at depth, such as porosity and permeability characteristics, stress/strain relationships, fluid phase and flow, via the application of elastico-mechano-luminescent nano-sensors and frequency modulated continuous wave radar analysis.
