The benefits of speed regulation in urban areas are demonstrated in terms of air quality, fuel consumption and traffic flow
Urban speed limits are one of the solutions available to big cities to improve traffic flow, to raise air quality, to rein in noise and to improve road safety. The prospect of additional benefits by adapting this limitation in real time, depending on traffic density, led an IFPEN team to evaluate this approach as part of a thesis work.
Dual-porosity and dual-fracture model for fractured geothermal reservoir simulation
Geothermal energy production has been developing since the start of the 2000s, and it is becoming necessary to have access to more precise numerical models to simulate the various scenarios that may be encountered. A new model combining dual porosity and dual fracture is proposed.
