Dear Colleagues,

We would like to cordially invite you to the Computational Geomechanics mini-symposium at the ASCE EMI 2020 Conference, which will take place on May 26–29, 2020 at Columbia University in NYC. The abstract submission is now open until January 15, 2020 (Link: The mini-symposium description is given below:

MS 206: Computational Geomechanics – in Honor of the 90th Birthday of Professor Frank L. DiMaggio


Jinhyun Choo, The University of Hong Kong (Contact Organizer)
Jose Andrade, California Institute of Technology
Ronaldo Borja, Stanford University
Qiushi Chen, Clemson University
Hoe Ling, Columbia 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 fluid 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.

This mini-symposium honors Professor Frank L. DiMaggio who has made immense contributions to many fields of engineering mechanics including computational geomechanics.

Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to see many of you at EMI 2020!

Best regards,
