AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture

From Linear Poroelasticity to Nonlinear Implicit Elastic and Related Models

3:15 PM – 4:00 PM
Chair: Kathryn Leonard, Occidental College, U.S.

Poroelasticity has many applications in energy and environmental engineering. When linear, it simulates the transient flow of a single-phase fluid in a deformable linear elastic porous medium. However, when the medium is brittle and fractured, linear elasticity is not applicable, but new nonlinear implicit models lead to a good description of the phenomenon. I shall introduce the simplest model of poroelasticity, then describe some new models and explain their mathematical and numerical issues.
