Multy-physics models of coupled processes in rock mass

Session ID#: 26505

Session Description:
This session focuses on theoretical, experimental and numerical contributions to the modeling of hydro-thermo-chemo-mechanical coupled processes in rock mass. Particular interest is placed on contributions concerning the development and validation of models which deliver novel solutions for effects of coupled processes on rock mass behavior across temporal and spatial scales. Furthermore, models addressing the issue of chemical reactive transport are also welcome.
Applications examples for such models are hydraulic fracturing of geothermal reservoirs, long-term georeservoir behavior, nuclear waste disposals, CO2 sequestration, gas leakage from abandoned oil and gas wells and regional hydrology. Other topics of interest with focus on coupled process are also invited.
