Welcome to the Damage Poromechanics Laboratory.

Our research involves...

  • Damage and healing modeling in rock and cement-based materials
  • Multi-scale modeling of Thermo-Hydro-Chemo-Mechanical processes in porous and granular media
  • ...with most applications in Energy Geotechnics: nuclear waste disposals, carbon dioxide sequestration, high-pressure gas storage, hydraulic fracturing, geothermal systems
