An introduction to Geoenergy technologies for subsurface energy extraction (shallow and deep geothermal systems, enhanced oil recovery, shale gas extraction) and secure storage of byproducts of energy production (carbon dioxide and nuclear wastes); project-based. Prerequisite: CE 180.
Prereqs enforced by the system: CE 180; Design Elective (Civil); HydroGeoPhys Design Elective (Env); Tech Elective (Civil, Env); Open to degree and CDE students
The course will offer an introduction to different Geo-energy technologies for subsurface extraction of energy and secure sequestration and storage of byproducts of energy production. Different subsurface energy extraction systems including shallow and deep geothermal energy systems, enhanced oil recovery systems, shale gas extraction, and various subsurface systems for storage of carbon dioxide and nuclear wastes will be discussed in this course.
Class attendance is mandatory. Class presentation on assigned topics related to the course material as well as term-project require group work, and therefore, an active and equitable participation in expected from each student. The students are expected to actively participate in class discussions on the assigned case studies and evaluate their peers while presenting their work. The reading assignments will be announced through Blackboard. The coursework will most likely require students to spend about 6 hours/week on this course outside the class period.
