Dear colleagues, 

We would like to draw your attention to the minisymposium "Multiscale Digital Rock and Granular Physics" which we are organizing as part of the Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference to be held at Stanford June 16-19, 2015.

Detailed information on the congress is available at: http://www.emi2015.info

The deadline for the abstract submission is November 15, 2014. For details see http://www.emi2015.info/abstract-submission

Best Regards,

The mechanical, hydraulic and thermal properties of unsaturated geomaterials are strongly influenced by the micro-mechanical liquid-gas-solid interactions occurring in the pore space. As a result, understanding how microstructural attributes evolve is the key step to characterizing macroscopic responses of geomaterials. This MS is aimed at providing a forum for both modelers and experimentalists to exchange ideas on digital rock physics – a technique that infers or estimates macroscopic material responses directly from pore structures inferred from digital images. In particular, we seek contributions on innovative usage of micro-CT imaging techniques for geomaterials, applications of 3D printing techniques to study single- and dual-porosity systems, and analytical and numerical techniques that predict fluid-induced micromechanical responses of porous media, and the multiscale homogenization techniques that connects microstructural attributes to field-scale simulations.
