Written by the world's leading porous materials experts and based on the Biot conference, named after Maurice Biot and held at Columbia University, this book contains over 170 original and not previously published papers on all phases of poromechanics in many materials from soils and minerals to human bone. Testing and modeling are covered in depth. Application areas include medical bioengineering, paving, carbon dioxide sequestration, geoengineering, micromechanics, and seismography. The main sections of the book listed below demonstrate the scope of this important poromechanics text. Some of the highlights of the book include: poromechanics of soil, living tissue, cements, clays, shale and other materials; applications in geoengineering, bioengineering, soil mechanics, seismic waves, paving, fluid flow, drilling, CO2 sequestration and more; and, techniques of testing, measurement and modeling from nano- to macroscale. Main sections include: Biomechanics Computation; Poromechanics in Bone; Ultrasonic Measurements; CO2 Sequestration; Unsaturated Geomaterials; Micromechanics of Granular Porous Media; Multiscale and Stochastic Modeling of Porous Media; Pavement and Subbase Materials; Thermodynamics and Information Theory; Nonlinear Effects, Shock Wave, and Fractures in Acoustics; Seismic Wave Propagation; Nano-indentation and Lab Measurement; Analytical and Computational Solutions;; Multiphase Fluid Flow in Deformable Porous Media; Constitutive Models; and, Strain Localization and Dynamic Loading.
