MR024:
Sedimentary Rock Response and Failure





Session ID#: 23522

Session Description:
Response to changing subsurface conditions and failure of sedimentary rocks are topics of great importance as society continues to exploit the subsurface for carbon management, oil and gas, waste disposal (nuclear and conventional), etc. Rock response and failure are affected by many factors, such as pore fluid, fluid chemistry, stress state, etc. Because basic mechanics forms the foundation for almost all investigations into and models of the subsurface, we seek submissions on fundamental behaviors (elastic/plastic response, creep, localization, fracture, permeability evolution, etc.) of rocks at all time and length scales, with and without pore fluids. We encourage submissions from theoretical, numerical, laboratory, and field studies.
