This introduction to geothermal modeling deals with flow and heat transport processes in porous andfractured media related to geothermal energy applications. Following background coverage of geothermal resourcesand utilization in several countries, the basics of continuum mechanics for heat transport processes, as wellas numerical methods for solving underlying governing equations are discussed. This examination forms the theoretical basis forfive included step-by-step OpenGeoSys exercises, highlighting the most important computational areas within geothermal resource utilization, including heat diffusion, heat advection in porous and fractured media,and heat convection. The book concludes with an outlook on practical follow-up contributionsinvestigating the numerical simulation of shallow and deep geothermal systems.
