Journal Club Theme of September 2014: Numerical modeling of thermo-hydro-mechanical coupling processes in porous media

Thermo-hydro-mechanics (THM) is a branch of mechanics aimed to predict how deformable porous media behave, while heat transfer and fluid transport simultaneously occur in the pores filled by liquid and/or gas. Understanding these multi-physical responses is important for a wide spectrum of modern engineering applications, such as tissue scaffolding, geothermal heating, mineral exploration and mining, hydraulic fracture, energy piles, tunneling with frozen soil and nuclear waste storage and management.

Composite Manufacturing Process Modeling Using Poromechanics

Modeling and simulation of manufacturing of advanced composite material is a must in today's industry as the use of advance composites is increasing dramatically. The aim is to reduce the number of trial and error by development of a simulation tool to model and predict the manufacturing fundamental phenomena happening simultaneously in different scales. Poromechanics is a multidisciplinary and multiphysics concept which can be used to achieve this goal.

Symposium on Geomaterials: Poromechanics and Failure at EMI International Conference, Hong Kong January 7-9,2015

Dear Colleagues, 

We are currently organizing a Symposium on Geomaterials: Poromechanics and Failure, for the upcoming EMI International Conference  "Mechanics for Civil Engineers Against Natural Hazards" in Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, from January 7th to 9th, 2015. 

We would like to invite submission for abstracts on modeling, characterization, and experimental studies on geomaterials for disaster prevention (landslides, earthquake) and for problems related to new energy applications (e.g. fracking, induced seismic events).
