H055:
Geo-Architected Materials for Unraveling the Complexity of Rock





Session ID#: 24325

Session Description:
The properties of rock are often non-uniform and heterogeneous, requiring multiple samples to unravel competing contributions to physical and geochemical behavior from compositional, textural and structural components. Selecting a “representative” rock samples is difficult, as any given rock core, sample, or field site provides either a limited view of the structural complexity or non-repeatable compositional heterogeneity that prevents accurate delineation of chemical kinetics and thermodynamics. This session will highlight experimental research on laboratory and field scale approaches that use 3D printing, laser writing, mineral synthesis, engineered fluids, and/or structured and functionalized surface patterning to create “geo-architected materials”. These newly-created geo-architected materials, with controlled and repeatable compositional and structural heterogeneity, can be used for experiments under a range of thermal, hydraulic, chemical and mechanical conditions to delineate coupled processes observed in real complex rocks and to enhance our understanding of coupled processes in a controlled way.
