Computational Modeling of Energy Systems

Computational Modeling of Energy Systems

Series: SpringerBriefs in Energy

Series Editors: Nagel, Thomas, Shao, Haibing


Dr. Nagel heads the groups "Computational Energy Systems" at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ in Leipzig, Germany, as well as "Environmental Geotechnics: Multi-physics simulation for geotechnical system analysis",  a joint work group between the UFZ and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). He holds an Adjunct Professorship at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and his main research interests are continuum mechanics and multiphysical processes in porous media for applications in energy, geotechnics and biology. 
During his Master's studies of Mechanical Engineering/Applied Mechanics at Chemnitz University of Technology, he discovered his fascination for coupled problems during several research stays at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, where he studied the  biomechanical and tribological properties of osteochondral transplants and artificial intervertebral discs as well as the causes of deep tissue injury in skeletal muscle tissue. In 2012 he was awarded his PhD from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, for a dissertation on the role of mechanical cues in regenerating and engineered skeletal tissues. Since then he has been working at the UFZ as part of a team of scientist developing the numerical simulation framework OpenGeoSys for coupled multi-physical problems. His particular foci are thermochemical heat storage, sensible heat storage in porous media and geotechnical applications in the context of energy supply, storage and waste management.


Junior-Prof. Dr. Haibing Shao leads the work group Geothermal Systems Analysis (https://www.ufz.de/index.php?en=37482) in the Department of Environmental Informatics at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ. He is also jointly appointed as a Junior Professor at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. His research interests are the numerical modelling of coupled processes in shallow and deep geothermal reservoirs. As a senior developer, he has been working with the open-source scientific software OpenGeoSys (www.opengeosys.org) for more than 10 years. He studied environmental engineering at the Tongji University in Shanghai (China) and obtained his Master’s degree at the University of Tübingen. In 2010, he earned his PhD title from TU Dresden, and since then working as a staff scientist at the UFZ.
