MR43A:
Traditional and Digital Sedimentary Rock Properties II


Session ID#: 7274

Session Description:
In recent years there has been a shift in focus towards investigations of coupled processes, fracture and fluid flow.  While these investigations have produced many interesting results, essential understanding of deformation, constitutive response and failure of sedimentary rocks is still incomplete.  Because basic mechanics forms the foundation for more complex investigations, fundamental sedimentary rock behavior is still a research topic of great importance.  We are seeking submissions on fundamental behaviors (elastic/plastic response, creep, localization, fracture, permeability evolution, etc.) at all time and length scales. We encourage submissions from theoretical, numerical, laboratory, and field studies.
