This mini-symposium is intended to provide a forum for researchers to present contributions on recent advances in computational geomechanics problems. Topics within the scope of interests includes: development and validation of constitutive models that addressed coupling effects, discrete and continuum formulations for hydromechanics and thermo-hydro-mechanics problems, iterative sequential couplings of fluid and solid solvers, spatial variability of soil properties, multiscale mechanics, weak and strong discontinuities, and regularization techniques to circumvent pathological mesh dependence.
The extended deadline for abstract submission is January 6th, 2014. See URL below.
