Poster for Eccomas Congress 2020 and 14th WCCM in Paris
Mini-symposium on Computational Modelling of Coupled Chemo-mechanical Processes in Geoenergy Applications (14th World Congress on Computational Mechanics)

Organised by The University of Manchester (UK) and CSIRO Energy (Australia)

This mini-symposium is dedicated to the advances in the field of computational modelling of coupled behaviour of geo-materials with a focus on chemically and bio-geochemically coupled phenomena involved in the flow and mechanical behaviour of soil and rock. The aim is to facilitate the exchange of advanced practices and knowledge between the researchers on theoretical, experimental and computational aspects of geo-mechanics. Considerations will be given, albeit not limited, to the soil and rock behaviour in geo-energy and geo-environmental applications. A non-exhaustive list of relevant subjects and example areas of engineering applications includes:

  • Geological disposal of high level nuclear waste
  • Geological sequestration of carbon dioxide
  • Geothermal energy systems
  • Unconventional subsurface energy and reservoirs
  • Physical and chemical rock stimulation processes
  • Bio-mediated and bio-inspired ground improvement techniques
  • Reactive transport in fractured rock

Geo-environmental Sustainability in South East Asia – Tackling Water and Soil Contamination Problems

Monday 29 and Tuesday 30 July 2019, Manchester. Organised by: Department of MACE, Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Sciences and Global Development Institute

This workshop aimed to bring experts from different disciplines to present challenges with geoenvironmental sustainability in South East Asia with specific focus on land and water contaminations. The workshop was attended by collaborators and experts from Indonesia (Institute Technology Bandung), Malaysia (University Technologi Malaysia) and China (Zhejiang University). There were more than 30 attendees (see image, top), including academics from different disciplines of engineering and social sciences to create the first of its kind multidisciplinary model of collaboration to address sustainability issues.
