Dear Colleagues,


We would like to cordially invite you to the Computational Geomechanics mini-symposium in EMI 2019, which will be held on June 18–21, 2019 at Caltech, Pasadena, CA, USA. The abstract submission is now open at until January 30, 2019. The mini-symposium description is given below:


EMI 2019, June 18–21, 2019. Caltech, Pasadena, CA, USA.

(Joint conference with Geo-Institute)


MS35: Computational Geomechanics



Jinhyun Choo, The University of Hong Kong (Contact Organizer)

Jose Andrade, California Institute of Technology

Ronaldo Borja, Stanford University

Qiushi Chen, Clemson University

Majid Manzari, George Washington University

SeonHong Na, McMaster University

Richard Regueiro, University of Colorado Boulder

WaiChing Sun, Columbia University



This mini-symposium will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the state-of-the-art in computational geomechanics. Emphasis will be on novel formulations, computational methods, and numerical simulations involving geomaterials such as soil and rock. Contributions are solicited in, but not restricted to, the following topic areas in computational geomechanics: (1) development, implementation, and validation of advanced constitutive models, (2) computational models and algorithms for multiphysics problems (coupled multiphase flow and solid deformation, chemo-thermo-hydro-mechanics, etc.), (3) numerical modeling of fracture, damage, and fragmentation processes in geomaterials, (4) micromechanics (particulate mechanics, molecular dynamics, etc.), (5) multiscale modeling (hierarchical and concurrent schemes, etc.), (6) meshfree methods for large deformation problems, (7) nonlocal and/or generalized continuum modeling, (8) dynamics of geomaterials, and (9) uncertainty quantification and probabilistic methods.


Best regards, 

Jinhyun Choo
