Minisymposium on “Multiphysics numerical modelling of geomaterials and computational strategies”

Francesco Pesavento, Lorenzo Sanavia and Bernhard Schrefler are organizing the Minisymposium MS22 on “Multiphysics numerical modelling of geomaterials and computational strategies” at the 5th Biot conference on Poromechanics,, July 10-12, 2013, Vienna, Austria

Geomaterials, biomaterials and other porous materials are classified as those with an internal structure and are characterized by a deformable solid skeleton with open and closed pores containing one or more fluids. In case of open pores these fluids usually are moving with respect to the solid skeleton and interact with each other and with the solid. Multiphysics processes are usually involved. This Minisymposium will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the current state of the art in the field of coupled models for multiphase porous materials and their numerical solution for the analysis of emerging multiphysics civil, environmental, chemical and bio- engineering problems.

One page abstract is required, to be uploaded on the conference web site before November 15, 2012, according to the template provided at . However,your response to this invitation at your earliest convenience would be appreciated.

Other important dates:
– Acceptance of the contributions: January 10, 2013
– Deadline for submitting the full paper: February 28, 2013
The “full paper” (can be only just four pages minimum, or up to ten pages maximum) is mandatory and it is planned to be included within a Special ASCE Biot conference proceedings, so as to guarantee wide coverage and indexing, keeping at the same time the tradition of all previous Biot conferences to produce every 4 years the seminal state-of-the-art report in the field.
– Deadline for early payment: February 28, 2013
