Session ID#: 3129
The mechanical and hydraulic properties of geo-materials are fundamental to predicting multiphysical processes in the subsurface critical to emerging energy and climate issues. In geologic formations, coupling among thermal, mechanical, chemical and hydrological processes lead to complex behaviors across an enormous range of spatial and temporal scales. These coupled responses are strongly influenced by the heterogeneity and induced anisotropy of microstructures. This session seeks contributions focusing on digital rock physics techniques used to characterize multiphase flow and mechanical properties across scales inferred from pore- and grain-scale images. Recent advances in digital rock technologies for in-situ multi-scale imaging and modeling from pore to core scales are welcomed. In particular, we seek applications of emerging 3D printing techniques to geo-related processes. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, fluid flow and mechanical behaviors on 3D digital rock structures, technologies related to 3D printings of geo-materials, and their applications for upscaling.
