Enseignant: Lecampion Brice Tanguy Alphonse

Langue: Anglais

Remark: First part Fundamentals of poromechanics -> over 5 days (3 hours lecture / day) Sept 4 to 8, 2023 Second part Fundamentals of fluid-driven fractures -> over the semester 1 hour lecture / week


Every 3 years


This course presents fundamental and selected topics of the mechanics and physics of fluid-infiltrated porous media with applications to geo-mechanics. Mathematical modeling and the techniques for the solution of the resulting initial boundary value problems will be emphasized (scaling,numerics...).
