WaiChing Sun's picture

Dear colleagues, 

I am writing to invite you to submit abstract to the Computational Geomechanics mini-symposium at the EMI Vanderbilt conference, from May 22th to 26th, 2016. The mini-symposium is co-organized by myself, Prof. Qiushi Chen, Prof. Xiayu Song, Dr. Joshua White, Prof. Richard Regueiro, Prof. Jose Andrade, Prof. Majid Manzaril and Prof. Ronaldo Borja.

The deadline for the abstract submission is Oct 15th, 2015. 

More information can be found at URL below:

The scope of the min-symposium is also listed below. 

Many thanks for your consideration. 

Best Regards,

WaiChing Sun

Geomaterials, such as soil, rock and concrete, are multiphase porous materials whose macroscopic mechanical behavior is governed by grain size distribution and mineralogy, fluid-saturation, pore space, temperature, loading paths and rate, drainage conditions, chemical reactions, and other factors. As a result, predicting the mechanical response of geomaterials often requires knowledge on how several processes, which often take place in different spatial and temporal domains, interact with each other across length scales.

This mini-symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers to present contributions on recent advances in Computational Geomechanics. Topics within the scope of interests include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) development and validation of constitutive models that address multi-physical coupling effects, (2) discrete and continuum formulations for geomechanics problems, (3) iterative sequential couplings of fluid and solid solvers, (4) uncertainty quantification for geomechanics problems, (5) multiscale mechanics, (6) modeling of weak and strong discontinuities, (7) regularization techniques to circumvent pathological mesh dependence, and (8) techniques to model crack growth and fragmentation processes in geomaterials.
